Power of the Purse! This annual fundraising event supports local literacy
through Imagination Library.
- Thursday, May 1, 2014
- 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
- Spirit Mountain Chalet
- Ticket price: $45
This fun night out includes sampling wine, enjoying appetizers and desserts, visiting with friends and bidding on purses and many other high-end items -- many that would make great Mothers Day gifts!
We're excited to extend the variety of silent auction items this year!
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!

Imagination Library is free to families and relies on support from the community, United Way of Greater Duluth, area sponsors, and this event.
Up to age five, children in Duluth, Proctor, Hermantown and up the north shore receive a new, age-appropriate book in the mail each month. Find out more information on the Imagination Library factsheet.
