Child Saving Institute Guild to Host PurseOnalities Virtually on Nov. 5

October 30, 2020

Please join the Child Saving Institute (CSI) Guild to raise funds for vulnerable children in the Omaha community at its first-ever VIRTUAL PurseOnalities event on Thursday, November 5.

Attendees will enjoy a “Pretty in Pink” themed event with an opportunity to participate in an exclusive silent auction featuring over-the-top designer purse packages and hear from featured guest speaker Leigh Anne Tuohy.

Leigh Anne and her family’s inspirational journey is proof that when we give a bit of ourselves to other people, we can make the world a better place and perhaps, even save a life. Her family’s journey was documented in Michael Lewis’ New York Times best-selling "The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game", which follows Michael Oher from his impoverished beginnings, to how Leigh Anne and Sean adopted him, to reaching football success. In 2009, the book was adapted into film "The Blind Side" in which Sandra Bullock portrayed Leigh Anne in an Academy Award-winning role.

Leigh Anne shares her personal “Blind Side” observations, from seeing Oher for the first time to how the experience changed her as a person—and the Tuohys as a family. As well, Leigh Anne focuses on the importance of recognizing the full potential of individuals in our communities, inspiring all of us to recognize the value in those who society has deemed valueless, and give whatever we can, whenever we can.

Virtual access to a private viewing of speaker Leigh Anne Tuohy and exclusive access to the online silent auction will be provided to event attendees through a unique link sent by email prior to the event. Tickets start at $75. The online silent auction begins on Monday, November 2 at 9am. The live virtual event featuring guest speaker Leigh Anne Tuohy begins on Thursday, November 5 at 11am.

Event chairs are Ashley Dieckman, Corrie Loper, Gina McDevitt and Meegan Vellek.
