We had a phenomenal time at Handbags and Happy Hour with our partner agencies, HOPE Family Services, Inc. (HOPE) and Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center (SPARCC)!

The evening was spent mingling with amazing supporters in our community coming together in a shared effort to make a difference by saving lives and bringing empowerment to the women in Manatee and Sarasota County.

While enjoying cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres, guests could enter to win from over a dozen stylish luxury handbags and accessories that were being raffled off, including pieces from Kate Spade to David Yurman. There were also a number of gorgeous handbags and accessories that were available to purchase at the Pop-Up Purse Boutique.

In between sipping and shopping, guests mingled and were entertained with fun music, and captured the moment in the photo booth with friends.

All proceeds from this event will support programs and services directly benefiting clients from all three partner agencies. Thank you to everyone that attended this collaborative event and showed their support to help save lives.
