EVERETT — The 11th Annual Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County (DVS) Handbag Auction kicks off at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1 and concludes at 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9.
This year’s event will be held online, but according to DVS Development and Volunteer Manager Emma Leedy, will still feature elements people have enjoyed at the in-person venue.
“Be on the lookout for new and gently used purses like in the silent auction and new, high-end purses like in the live auction. Bid on centerpieces (purses with goodies in them) and don’t forget about the wallets and clutches,” Leedy said in a Sept. 15 press release. “Be sure to check out the drawing for a Tory Burch tote or Fossil tote and matching zip clutch sponsored by Leavitt Group Northwest. There’s something for everyone!”
Leedy said a couple of items added to this year’s event are purses starting at the $10 mark that will include a $10 gift certificate to the New & Again Thrift Shoppe in downtown Everett, and an option to buy something right away with a guaranteed bid. Guaranteed bidders will also be entered into a drawing for a $250 Nordstrom gift card.
All proceeds of the auction go toward providing programs and services free-of-charge to DVS clients.
