One of the great things about the Portland fashion scene is that, much like the city itself, it almost always incorporates some way to give back to our community, because that actually gets more people to attend. "Power of the Purse" is no exception, and actually sounds like it could be fun, twixt the hobnobbing and auctioning.


Mabel & Zora is partnering up with Girls Inc. for the 3rd year in a row to hold a dinner and auction that benefits Girls Inc. Girls Inc. provides after school programs to girls ages 8-18 that empower and educate young women, about anything from media literacy to money managing skills.

The schedule for the evening, this Friday, March 8th at the Portland Art Museum, is as follows:
4:30 p.m. Boutique, Silent Auction, Wine Wall and Photo Booth Open
5:30 p.m. Live Auction & Dinner Guests Arrive
7 p.m. Silent Auction Closes
7:15 p.m. Live Auction & Dinner
