On Friday, November 4th the Red Cross will host their annual "In the Bag" luncheon and fundraiser. There are only a few tickets left and they're $150.00 each.
The theme of the lunch is lots of vintage, celebrity and designer bags that have been donated for auction with the proceeds going to the vital services that the Red Cross provides. Last year the lunch raised $20,000 and the goal this year is $40,000.
If you've been looking over your fall and winter wardrobe and picturing some gorgeous designer bag that would look perfect with a certain outfit this would be your opportunity to get it and an end of year tax write off at the same time!
You can go to the website to see exactly what is up for grabs this year www.redcrosspurses.com.
Included in the auction will be celebrity bags from Ann Compton, national correspondent for ABC News; Kathie Lee Gifford, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kolb, Natalie Morales and Jenna Wolfe from NBC's Today Show; Former Miss America Phyllis George; actress Cybill Shepherd: Ivanka Trump, executive vice president of The Trump Organization; and Former Senator Elizabeth Dole, who served as president of the American Red Cross from 1991 to 2001.
If you can't attend the luncheon you can still participate by purchasing a raffle ticket for some incredible packages. Getaways, makeovers, dinners and some pampering are included and the raffle tickets are only $20 each or 7 for $100. They can also be purchased on the event website.
It sounds like a unique event that benefits a great cause so plan on attending or trying your luck with the raffle by Friday!
