On Friday, May 10, 2013, a sellout crowd of beautiful women from as far away as Pennsylvania, attended the 2013 Power of the Purse at the Gallagher Center at the Eastern Star Home. It is truly the “Premier Event” for the Spring in Knox County. They were treated to a fabulous dessert and salad buffet by Rick Rollinger and his crew from Smithhisler Meats, entertained by two adorable musicians and inspired to bid on purses by talented auctioneer Hershel Thomas. Over $27,000.00 was raised to support the programs of the Red Cross.
The American Red Cross of Knox County would like to thank the sponsors, attendees, and the community for supporting this event.
