Would you like to win a designer purse (Tory, Kate, Michael, Coach to name a few) plus goodies valued at up to $1,500 for just $35 (or buy 4 chances to win for $100)?

When you purchase your ticket, you will be given a 3-digit number. Keep that number, you will have a chance to win each day of June. If your number matches the Maryland Lottery Pick 3, you win a purse bundle of your choosing.

Tickets will go on sale in early 2022.

Anticipation. Could look at bundles slowly and really see what was in each. Was able to put all bundles in order of preference and then cross them out when taken.

I am not from MD so it was easy for me to participate.

I don’t need a babysitter ! More equal opportunity to win. Covid safe.

Unique event for pandemic. Lots of creative efforts obviously put forth.

Congrats to the Committee!

I just loved it! Checking the evening Daily number was so fun every day!

I liked that I could check my numbers each evening after the lottery was drawn. I also liked the calendar on the website with the winning number and the winner.

I appreciated that the winning number and winner's name were posted daily. Also, the pictures and descriptions of the bundles were great.

Loved all of it. As a planner, I know this way had to be so much easier on the committee. A lot less labor intensive then in the past. I also liked that there wasn’t a lot of “junk” stuffed in the purse. Fewer, better quality items are better.

Thought it was very clever to tie into MD Lottery and liked the idea of checking every few days to see if I won anything!

I really liked this event and also enjoy the in-person shopping event. I will participate in either in the future!


What is POTP v 2.1?

POTP v.2.1 is an on-line lottery extravaganza with only 1,000 tickets available. Each ticket is assigned a three-digit number and during the month of June, the winning number will match Maryland’s evening lottery 3-pick number. That evening’s winner will have a choice of 30, high-end purse bundles with values varying from $300 to more than $1,000.

Power of the Purse (POTP) was founded in 2012 by Custom Media Options with Blossoms of Hope and the Business Women’s Network as co-recipients of the proceeds. Since then, Blossoms of Hope has partnered with Custom Media Options to make Power of the Purse a premiere shopping experience. During COVID-19, Power of the Purse v. 2.1 was created as an on-line version of the original Power of the Purse. The in-person POTP will now be a part of Beer, Bourbon and Bags while POTP v.2.1 will continue to be an on-line FUNdraiser.
