Women and Money event will empower women to wealth

News Apr 22, 2016 by Colleen Toms Brant News

Women have the power to take charge of their financial wellbeing. Sometimes all they need is encouragement and real-world advice to do so.

Local women have the opportunity to learn how they can ensure a financially stable future by attending the second installment of The Power of the Purse – Empowering Women to Wealth on Wednesday, May 4.

Titled Women and Money, the interactive and intimate workshop will explore how women’s upbringing, money personality and decision-making can impact their financial wealth.

“It’s all about women helping women,” Shannon McMannis of Cornerstone Capital Financial Group, said.

The event is hosted by McMannis and features guest speaker Anne Manson, vice president of CI Investments Inc. who was recently named a Woman of Influence by Wealth Professional magazine.

Manson travels across Canada to deliver programs that educate women about their financial decision-making.

“It was a great partnership because it’s about empowering women,” McMannis said of having Manson as guest speaker. “Again, it’s about information. It’s geared to the 45-year-old to 65-year-old females, looking really at their snapshots of where they are right now and providing a lot of information about what can happen and what you should be doing.”

A maximum of 35 seats are available to ensure an intimate setting where women will be comfortable asking questions.

The Power of the Purse will partner with Nova Vita once again to raise funds for the women’s shelter. Gently used clothing and purses will also be accepted for Closet Couture, which is one of Nova Vita’s main fundraising initiatives.

A full-meal – including dessert by Stacey Farrant of Sweet Bakery – swag bags, and a silent auction of designer purses will also be included.

All proceeds of the auction will be donated to Nova Vita, along with $10 from each ticket sale. Women will receive a $10 charitable tax receipt from Nova Vita.

Tickets cost $35 and can be purchased online at ThePowerOfThePurse.ca. There are a limited amount of tickets left.

Women and Money will be held at the Brantford Golf and Country Club from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Cocktails can be purchased at the cash bar starting at 5:30 p.m. and the three-course dinner will be served at 6 p.m.
