RMHC Maine is proud to announce that the thirteenth annual Purses with Purpose fundraiser, with presenting sponsor Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, held on June 7 at the Woodlands Club in Falmouth raised over 63 thousand dollars. Every dollar contributed supports the mission of providing a home away from home for families of pediatric patients. Over two hundred women from Portland and surrounding areas attended the luncheon. The afternoon included a silent auction featuring local and designer handbags, gift certificates, jewelry, skin care and more. A heartfelt program emceed by Kim Block from WGME included the personal story from a family who used the House in recent years, a few special notes from our presenting sponsor and a live auction with items from Southwest Airline tickets, Rough & Tumble, Company C, Angela Adams, and more. The event reiterated the importance that RMHC Maine is always available for families who are facing one of life’s greatest challenges – a child needing medical care.


“It is truly amazing to see so many women take time out of their day to attend our fundraiser and support RMHC Maine,” said Robin Chibroski, RMHC Maine’s Executive Director. “The funds that we raised today will support our mission and allow us to provide a home away from home for families all year long. We are incredibly grateful to our community of supporters.”
