Transformance “Purses with a Purpose” Raises $204,000
Dallas, TX, 10/29/2015
Transformance, Inc., formerly Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS) of Greater Dallas, has released figures showing that their 6th Annual “Purses with a Purpose” charity fundraising event exceeded their expectations.
A record-breaking $204,000 was raised from the nearly 500 attendees at last week’s luncheon, held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Love Field. The amount is the most ever raised in the six-year history of the event and came largely from matching gifts and those bidding on the extravagant collection of purses donated to the cause of helping women and families in need. Keynote speaker Carmen Rita Wong, CNBC financial contributor and author of The Real Cost of Living, spoke to the guests about empowering their own financial literacy journeys.
“Purses with a Purpose is our signature annual fundraising event and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results,” said Ken Goodgames, president and CEO of Transformance. “We also officially announced our name change from Consumer Credit Counseling of Greater Dallas to Transformance and the success story provides a dramatic backdrop for what our future holds.”
