National Purple Purse Movement to Benefit Bradley Angle this October

Bradley Angle is proud to announce that it has joined the The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge, a fundraising campaign launched by The Allstate Foundation.

As a part of this Challenge, The Allstate Foundation will be donating $500,000 to ignite public awareness and fundraising for 160 U.S. charities benefiting domestic violence survivors. The charity that raises the most throughout the Challenge will get a $100,000 donation. Second place gets $75,000, third gets $50,000, fourth gets $25,000 and 5th-10th each get $10,000. We’re out to raise as much money as possible for our cause so we can win the $100,000 grand prize donation.

It all starts on October 1st, the first day of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

The national ambassador for the Purple Purse Challenge is Scandal star Kerry Washington.

Locally, Wild author Cheryl Strayed has pledged her support to Bradley Angle. All donors who give to Bradley Angle through the Purple Purse Challenge will earn a complimentary ticket to Bradley Angle’s Wild Lunch featuring Cheryl Strayed for every $100 they contribute.

The Wild Lunch will be held on October 29, from 12pm to 1pm at The Nines Hotel in Downtown Portland.
