Bid on Barr’s Purse.

Julia Barr (ex-Brooke, AMC) is participating in the Power of the Purse auction in Fort Wayne, Indiana on September 29. The fundraiser, hosted by the United Way’s Women United committee, will support early-childhood education.

The roughly 150 new and gently used designer purses to be auctioned off will be donated by the likes of Barr, Barbara Walters, journalist Robin Roberts and actress Shelley Long.

The event, held at 5221 Covington Road at the Fort Wayne Country Club, will include hors d’oeuvres, a cheesecake bar and cash bar. The proceeds will go to the Fort Wayne Urban League’s Read ‘n Rise program, SCAN’s Healthy Families program and will help provide scholarships for low-income preschoolers to attend accredited child care centers.

To reserve your spot at the auction contact The United Way’s Robin Holley at (260) 469-4002.
