Jean D’Aquila, chair of the Middlesex United Way Women’s
Initiative, with Carol Wallace, CEO of Cooper-Atkins
Corporation in Middlefield, at last year’s Power of the Purse
fundraiser and silent auction.
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.
