Power of the Purse 2021
Power of the Purse is a signature luncheon event to celebrate the impact the Women's Fund has made in the community and recognize the important work of local grant recipients. Guests learn more about issues facing women and girls today and have the opportunity to financially support the Women's Fund endowment and granting programs through a popular handbag and basket silent auction.
Our 16th annual Power of the Purse event will feature inspirational Boston Marathon hero, humanitarian and award-winning physician, Dr. Natalie Stavas. As an avid runner, Dr. Stavas's philosophy for success is? "You Run Toward." This philosophy was never more apparent than on April 15, 2013. She had just run 26 miles and was about to finish the Boston marathon when the bombs detonated at the finish line. Instead of running away, she ran towards the chaos and saved 4 lives that day.
Dr. Natalie Stavas attacks every obstacle with the same attitude: "You run towards that which you fear, that which challenges you, that which is oppositional."
