Want a new or like-new handbag or tote? Got one you’ve never used or hardly used that you’d like to donate?
The Duvall Civic Club invites you to a benefit Purse Party at Match Coffee and Wine Bar in Duvall from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 20th.
You can bid on new and like-new purses and totes and enjoy a specially-priced benefit glass of wine or a coffee with other area women. (Food will also be available for purchase.)
Proceeds from the event, in tandem with the upcoming Walk 4 Women event to be held in October on the Snoqualmie River Trail in Duvall, will go to women at a Duvall shelter and to the “safe houses” of the Eastside Domestic Violence Program.
“The Purse Party will kick off our autumn fundraising events for women and their children who are in need of a safe place to be,” event organizer Maura VanNess said. “We hope women will dig through their closets for new or unneeded purses and totes to help in this fun and worthwhile event. And we hope they and their families and friends will join us as well at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 20 for the Walk 4 Women.”
The Walk is a 13.2-mile half marathon, open to anyone who wants to walk the whole way or just a short distance.
If you have a purse or tote to donate, you can drop it off anytime prior to the Purse Party at Match Coffee and Wine Bar in Duvall, 15705 Main Street, open Tuesday through Saturday.
Bids will be taken starting at 5 p.m. the day of the Purse Party, with bidding to close at 7:30 p.m. (You must be present to claim your winning bid on a purse.)
