What to know before you go!

This year’s event will again feature electronic bidding for over 100 purses and auction baskets in our popular silent auction. That means you can bid, track, and pay for your most-wanted items using a smartphone.  

We invite you to pre-register your phone now and preview the auction items. Simply text WFPOP21 to 76278 and follow the instructions. Representatives will also be available to assist on Thursday.

Bidding starts 8:00 a.m., Wednesday September 15.

Parking

Parking in the Main St. and Pine St. ramps will be complimentary courtesy of BMO Harris Bank and R.W. Baird – Lorri Cisler.  We encourage you to use the skywalk over Main St. to reduce foot traffic crossing the street.  Vouchers will be available at your luncheon place setting. Simply scan the voucher upon exiting either ramp.

Handicap parking is available between Hampton Inn and KI Convention Center. 

Carpooling with other guests is highly encouraged. Uber or Lyft are also great options! 

Ample free parking is also available at Leicht Park — a short walk over the bridge. Arrive early for best options!



Donate a Used Purse

Please consider bringing a gently-used purse to donate to the YWCA Women’s Career Closet
