About Our Auction

Purses and Promises is a fundraiser for the Dolly Parton's Imagination Library in Terrebonne Parish. Through this program, registered children receive an age-appropriate book every month until their fifth birthday at NO COST to their families. These books increase a child's learning capacity, promote literacy and social skills, and most importantly - prepares them for Kindergarten.

With more than 3,300+ children currently enrolled, TFAE funds this program at the cost of approximately $80,000 a year. Your purchase of a Purses & Promises ticket and of purses in this auction will directly sponsor local children in the Imagination Library!

Many thanks to our Virtual Silent Auction Presenting Sponsor Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana, as well as our additional sponsors: Rushing Media, Shell Pipeline Co., Synergy Bank, Terrebonne Ford, South Louisiana Bank, Courtyard Marriott, and Bayou Signs Outdoor.
