We are pleased to Introduce a new nonprofit organization, Purse-Impressions, started by Patricia Brusha a local Cave Creek resident. Their mission is simple yet powerful; “To gift graduates from rehab with a purse or backpack that celebrates their accomplishments, allowing them to move forward with dignity, strength and the knowledge that someone cares”

Patricia lost her 28-year-old daughter suddenly and tragically in June of 2019 from complications due to her alcoholism.   Before her death, when she thought she had beat her addiction, Courtney imagined gifting graduates with fresh start purses or backpacks helping them re-enter the community after rehab. This is how Purse-Impressions started!

In just 5 short months Purse-Impressions has made its own first impression by donating 800 purses and backpacks to 7 rehab centers in AZ, CO, FL and Canada

Their 1st Fundraiser will be held Sunday February 23, 2020 at Venues Café in Carefree from 11:30-3:30. In addition to brunch, live music and a giant silent auction, the top prize for the Grand Raffle is a $1000 Air/Hotel Package from Travelocity.
