Local women are bidding up a storm tonight.
The Muskingum Valley Red Cross held its "Power of the Purse" Auction. It was a sold-out event. The women had a lot to choose from...more than 100 purses with incentives.
"You have a room full of 300 ladies. There's always a great time, " says Marlene Henderson of the Red Cross.
Some women came with a strategy when it came to bidding.
"Make sure you hold it way high and wave it...(laughs), " says attendee Tamara Smithcombs.
Others took notes on which purses they had their eyes on.
While it may have been a fun night, every purse contained a message. It will help a family in our community. Proceeds of the event go directly to the Red Cross' Disaster Relief Fund.
