Power of the Purse Committee members Kay Danziger, Christy Willman, Kay Garrett and Sherry Knox load up purses for display in Richmond and Rosenberg businesses during OakBend Medical Center’s 2021 virtual Power of the Purse fundraiser last month. The benefit was a whopping success, organizers reported.
