Handbags help care for hurting women and children

Submitted by on October 20, 2010 – No Comment

The Salvation Army in Sacramento held its annual Helping Handbags luncheon last week and raised more than $40,000 for programs that benefit area women and children!

According to Syd Fong, our Public Relations Director in Sacramento, “more than 200 items were offered during the event’s live and silent auctions, including designer handbags, local celebrities’ gently-used purses, donated gift certificates, and items given by local businesses. Some notable items that auctioned off at Helping Handbags included items donated by singer Linda Ronstandt, District Attorney Jan Scully and community leader Joyce Raley Teel.”

If you have a valuable designer handbag that you’d like to donate for next year’s auction event, Syd would love to hear from you.
