Thursday night is the Power of The Purse event at the Cornhusker Hotel.

It's to help children find safety, stability and enduring family relationships.

At the silent auction, guests will have the chance to bid on handbags and support CEDARS.

All funds raised will go to the organization, that helps kids in crisis, and in building strong familes, right here in Lincoln.

The event starts at 6:30 p.m.
