FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - United Way of Allen County held a significant fundraiser Thursday night to raise money for early childhood education.

The Power of the Purse raised money for Lutheran Social Services Children's and other early childhood programs for low-income families.

More than 100 purses were auctioned off. The United Way also auctioned off scholarships to help sponsor children in their education.

The United Way has raised thousands of dollars in past years, and hoped for another good year Thursday night.
