The Women’s Fund of El Paso is hosting a special screening of “The Devil Wears Prada” at Alamo Drafthouse with proceeds going to support El Paso women in leadership and education.
“It’s a great way to raise awareness about the impact women can have when they work to support each other,” said Georgina Hernández, vice president of the Women’s Fund of El Paso and a member of the Power of the Purse marketing committee. “And the proceeds benefit local women through scholarships to help with college or vocational school.”
The $20 hot ticket includes entry into the movie party and a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of several designer accessories donated by Lucchesse Bootmakers. Guests are invited to dress up as Anna Wintour or bring their best Vogue impression and be ready for fashionable fun.
The theme for this fall’s Power of the Purse event will be unveiled at the viewing party.
Power of the Purse is the signature fundraising event for the Women’s Fund of El Paso, which was established in 2004 to connect women with community resources and offer educational advancement and leadership development opportunities. The organization has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships.
“The Devil Wears Prada” stars Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in the story of life behind the scenes at a high-powered fashion magazine. First released in 2006, the movie has become a timeless classic.
The viewing party begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 10 at the Alamo Drafthouse located at 250 E. Monticello. Tickets are limited and can be purchased here.
Guests are invited to bring gently used purses to donate for the Power of the Purse event.
