fundraiser and silent auction. 
MIDDLETOWN – The sixth annual Middlesex United Way Women’s Initiative “Power of the Purse” fundraiser will take place June 26 at the Mattabessett Canoe Club. “Power of the Purse” features a silent auction with themed purses, totes, designer handbags, and more – packed with great items like tickets to comedian Jeff Dunham including transportation, concert tickets, Red Sox tickets, wine and dinner packages, spa packages, and more.

The Middlesex United Way Women’s Initiative celebrates the power of women to bring about positive change in our community through philanthropy and service. Proceeds from “Power of the Purse” benefit the work of the Women’s Initiative to strengthen the lives of women and children in Middlesex County in the areas of early childhood development, empowering young women and financial stability.

Last year’s event sold out. Tickets are available at online or from any member of the Women's Initiative for $35 and include dinner and live music. For information and to donate silent auction items, contact Middlesex United Way at 860-346-8695 or See examples of auction items on Twitter at @MiddlesexWomen.
