Thing to do in Reno, Nevada
Reno, Nev. – (Oct. 10, 2017) Power of the Purse, Reno’s premier shopping and socializing event benefitting the Nevada Women’s Fund (NWF), returns to the Downtown Reno Ballroom on Friday, Nov. 17 from 5 to 9 p.m. Proudly celebrating 10 years, the annual tradition continues to link northern Nevadans to quality local vendors as a way to encourage holiday season shopping while supporting NWF in its mission to inspire achievement for women and families.
