Handbags & Happy Hour is a fun event created in collaboration with other local nonprofits, SPARCC and HOPE Family Services. You might recognize it from past years as “Empower Your Purse”. Handbags & Happy Hour is the same sell-out collaborative event with even more to love!

Taking place on Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 5-7pm at Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club, this event has plenty of great things in store. Attendees will have the chance to participate in an exciting purse raffle and “Pop Up Purse Boutique”, supporting The Unique Boutique and HOPE Chest Thrift Store. Light refreshments will be served.

We encourage guests to bring purses to donate to women who are working to change their lives. This event helps bring empowerment to thousands of women in our community.

We are incredibly thankful for the opportunity to have this community partnership with such outstanding organizations, SPARCC and Hope Family Services. Last year, more than 10% of HOPE clients were also receiving services from the WRC. SPARCC had 113 referrals to WRC. And we had 147 referrals to domestic violence agency community partners.

Join us for a fun night filled with memorable moments, mingling with friends and supporters alike, and supporting a great cause. We hope to see you there! Tickets are NOW available online – get yours before they’re gone!
