You can support this effort while having a great time at Power of the Purse! This fun night out includes wine sampling and great food with friends and bidding on amazing silent auction items like designer purses, massage certificates, travel and art items as well as tickets to sporting and cultural events.
Towards the end of the evening, award winning author and storyteller Lise Lunge-Larsen (known in Duluth as “The Troll Lady”) will spin some tales and remind us why it’s important to share folk tales with children. Her youth in Norway among trolls, both dead and alive, have earned her an exclusive spot as “Troll expert!” She’ll help you see why stories help children learn about life and their place in the world. Who knows? She may even slay a dragon!
