Loosen your purse strings and bid on vintage designer and celebrity pocketbooks to benefit the American Red Cross National Capital Region
Friday, November 4, 2011
Join the American Red Cross for their annual charity event featuring a luncheon and handbag auction. The women’s committee will auction off designer, vintage, and celebrity handbags. All handbag sales will benefit local American Red Cross programs.
The American Red Cross is also seeking handbag donations now for the annual high-end handbag auction. The programs include disaster relief, first aid training and assistance for area military families.
Last year “In the Bag: Purses for Preparedness,” which auctions offdesigner, vintage and celebrity handbags, raised $20,000. Organizers hope to double the proceeds this year.
