Raise your hands if you need a new handbag for fall.
Aha. That's a lot of you. So make some time on Saturday for an event sponsored by the Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary. It's the third annual Helping Handbags Luncheon, which combines style with a heaping helping of heart!
The event features handbags donated from various local - and even international - celebs, including a Prada bag from Joyce Raley Teel and a bag from reknowned photographer Anne Geddes.
KFBK's Kitty O'Neal will serve as the event's emcee as well as auctioneer.
Chairwoman Krista Noonan called to say there would be at least 250 handbags available via both live and silent auctions. At least 95 percent of the handbags are new; the rest are in excellent condition. Also, there will be a wide range of prices.
All of the funds raised will benefit underprivileged women and children in the Sacramento community, so it's definitely worth opening your old pocketbooks to get a new one.
The benefit is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at the Radisson Hotel, 500 Leisure Lane. Tickets are $40 ($22 of that is tax-deductible) and are available by calling Debi Llata at (916) 397-8350.
