BENEFITING: YWCA OF LAKE COUNTY

EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge

EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2015

THE STORY:

Week 4 (Oct. 20-27): Every ten donations we receive during Week 4 equals one entry for a chance to win $10,000. There will be five winners. Contest ends at 1 p.m. CT.

Week 3 (Oct. 13-20): We were one of the Top 50 Charities to raise the most during Week 3, and we won $1,000!

Week 2 (Oct. 6-13): We needed to get at least ten donations during Week 2 to get entered for a chance to win $10,000 – we got 38. There will be three winners, so cross your fingers!

Week 1 (Oct. 1-6): We had a goal to raise $500 this week to get entered in a raffle for a chance to win $2,500, and we exceeded our goal and doubled that amount! Way to go!

Day 1 (Oct. 1): That's one small step in the challenge, but one giant leap for us! Our first victory came on day one of the Purple Purse Challenge when we reached our goal of raising $250! As a reward, Purple Purse will be matching our first $250 - and there's still 26 more days to go!

YWCA Lake County joins a lineup of more than 160 Community Partners across the country to lead this year's Purple Purse Challenge - a national fundraising competition to support domestic violence programs.

We know that a lack of financial resources is the number one reason domestic violence survivors return to abusive relationships. So for the past three years, we've partnered with local shelters in training 70-100 survivors per year to achieve financial independence.

All funds raised through the Purple Purse Challenge directly benefit this program.

Here's how you can help:

  1. Join the team as a fundraiser by clicking the "FUNDRAISE for this Community Partner" button on the right -------------------->
  2. Follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter to receive updates. You can also receive e-mail updates by signing up for our e-mail list.
  3. On October 1st, when the Challenge begins, the "DONATE" button will go live. Share this page with your friends, families, co-workers and neighbors and encourage them to donate and fundraise with you.
  4. We'll keep you up-to-date on Purple Purse contests and events as well as our status in the Challenge all the way through October 27th when the winners are announced.

E-mail us at sohnj@ywcalakecountyil.org with any questions regarding the Purple Purse Challenge. We can't wait to get started!
