5th Annual Raise the Purse

Fundraising Event

Silent Auction  |  Luncheon  |  Live Auction

Spring 2021, To be determined

This event features a silent auction of new and gently used designer handbags and purses, as well as some sport-specific bags provided by various Drake Athletic teams.  All proceeds directly benefit Drake University student-athletes through the Bulldog Club.

Considering our current health climate, and with respect to our amazing supporters, Drake Athletics has decided to delay this fun-filled event until after the New Year. We fully intend to safely host a special, fifth-anniversary event of RAISE THE PURSE, but not until we feel more comfortable with the safety and health protocols we will need to put in place. Should we approach the New Year and continue to have concerns about an in-person event, we plan to conduct our program and auctions in a virtual setting.  That said, please be on the lookout for future updates.

In the meantime, we could still use your help.  Drake Athletics relies on this RAISE THE PURSE fundraiser to support our student-athletes. Examples of this support are visible in academic assistance, treatment and injury prevention, nutrition supplements and education, and specific programming aimed at developing the whole student into socially responsible future leaders of our world. Your contributions directly impact the lives of these young adults.
