Handbags to go up for auction
Handbags for Hospice is heading to the CASO Station to raise money to build a residential hospice for St. Thomas and Elgin County.
“It’s our signature fundraising event for the year,” said Linda Corriveau, resource centre manager at Serenity House Hospice.
Local businesses donate handbags that are placed for a silent and live auction at the Nov. 1 event.
For $20 attendees get to pick a gift bag from the “wine wall” that contains a bottle of wine.
“They don’t know which wine that they’re getting,” Corriveau said.
The event has a Hollywood theme and guests are encouraged to dress as their favourite celebrity.
