The third annual Power of the Purse luncheon and silent purse auction will be held at 11:30 a.m. April 11 at Walker Hall Events Center, 229 Madison St.
The event is held on Women's Equal Pay Day. Recent U.S. Census Bureau data shows women earning 80 cents for every dollar a male earns, which illustrates the need for women to be empowered in gaining their full value in the workplace.
Sponsored by Baptist Health Paducah, proceeds will benefit United Way of Paducah-McCracken County and Paducah-River City Business and Professional Women.
Tierra Kavanaugh (Turner) Wayne will be a featured speaker. She is the CEO of TKT & Associates Inc., a leading company in workplace diversity management and professional staffing.
Advance reservations are required with a March 27 or sell-out date deadline. Tickets are $45, with available corporate sponsorships.
