KTMB invites residents and visitors of the Truckee Meadows to experience their senses for a good cause at KTMB’s 3rd annual Raise the River fundraiser. This year’s event is presented by Title Sponsor NV Energy. Guests will enjoy culinary delights by celebrity Chef, Mark Estee of Liberty Food & Wine Exchange, local craft libations, entertainment, and sensory activities at the Sensory Garden in Idlewild Park, Reno on Thursday, August 16, 2018.

Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful has been a voice for beautification through education and active community involvement for over 25 years. With the help and support of the City of Reno Parks and Recreation, KTMB broke ground on the Sensory Garden in 2012 turning it into a permanent fixture in Reno to teach children about local ecosystems, watersheds, and pollinators through their five sense.

“This event is always a wonderful evening in the beautiful Sensory Garden,” said Christi Cakiroglu, KTMB’s Executive Director. “To see local artists, businesses, entertainers, and individuals in the Truckee Meadows community come together for this event truly embodies what Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is all about.”

The event will have sensory stations that are themed for taste, touch, smell, sight sound, a sit-down family style meal, dessert and fun sensory surprises.

KTMB’s Raise the River is made possible by our amazing sponsors: NV Energy, Dolan Auto Group, Wells Fargo, Moana Nursery, Grand Sierra Resort, Nevada Mining Association and The Grove.

The Nevada Women’s Fund annual Power of the Purse event is Reno’s premiere holiday shopping experience. This is a GREAT event to get a head start on holiday shopping while donating to a locally focused organization.

This year the Nevada Women’s Fund brings together local boutiques, artisans and vendors selling one-of-a-kind gifts, hand-made artisan jewelry, fashion items, specialty foods, beauty products, home décor and much more. “We are thrilled to showcase 88 vendors, 20 of them new to the event, with a variety of products at the 9 th annual Power of the Purse event. Combined with our incredible purse raffle, this event is the ultimate girl’s night out where connecting local vendors with unique gifts and local shoppers is a win-win for our community and the Nevada Women’s Fund mission,” said Tiffany East, board member and Chair of the 2016 Power of the Purse event. “We are looking forward to another fun evening with friends and supporters.”

Living up to its namesake, a raffle of 30 unique and quality brand name purses including, Coach, Michael Kors, Cole Haan, Kate Spade, Dooney and Bourke, Brahmin, Calvin Klein, Tory Burch and more, marks the highlight of the event.

Power of the Purse is the ultimate girl’s night out while also being a family-friendly excursion with the twopronged goal of supporting local businesses and benefiting the NWF’s mission. Last year, over 1,000 people attended with expectations for it to surpass that this year. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Nevada Women’s Fund’s mission of inspiring achievement in local women and families. Shop, wine and dine all while supporting local vendors, local women and families and a local foundation.

Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door and includes holiday fare and two complimentary beverages. To purchase tickets visit http://nevadawomensfund.org/ or call the Nevada Women’s Fund at 775-786-2335.

Founded in 1982 the Nevada Women’s Fund has championed the needs of women and children, helping them to reach their full potential as productive citizens. In its 34-year history the organization has  awarded $3.5 million in community grants to 151 community non-profit organizations and $3.6 million in educational scholarships to 1,559 northern Nevada women.    The Nevada Women’s Fund 770 Smithridge Drive—Suite 300 Reno, Nevada 89503 775-786-2335 www.nevadawomensfund.org
