This is a fabulous evening for fashionistas who know how to accessorize! The right bag can make you feel sexy, powerful, classy and/or elegant. Joan Kelly will be conducting the celebrity handbag auction. Celebrities, as diverse as Tina Fey, Marcia Cross, Olivia Newton John, have donated autographed handbags to the auction to help fund Gilda’s Club. Handbags range from a Chanel handbag, signed by Sharon Osborne to an evening bag and autographed book by Rebecca Wells. Even Dale Chihuly will be decorating a hand bag for the auction.
In addition to the live auction, over 400 handbags will be available via silent auction. Women attending the fundraiser are encouraged to donate a new or nearly new handbag to the auction. Even if you can not attend Bags and Bottles in person, you can still support Gilda’s Club AND get a very special handbag via the online auction. Whether you need a that bag holds everything but the kitchen sink or something small and simple to hold just the essentials, you will find a hand bag, purse or evening clutch to fit your style and your desire.
Speaking of desire, the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters Burn Foundation (WSCFF) will be there signing and selling their 2010 calendars. The WSCFF Burn Foundation is a fire fighter run organization that funds burn research, sends kids with burn injuries to summer camp and promotes burn prevention. Besides the calendars being for a good cause, they are awfully fun to look at!
