Purses with Purpose benefits women-centered organizations

The North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club knows a woman’s weakness … handbags! The Purses with Purpose charity event is the group’s fundraiser that supports organizations focusing on women, children and youth, seniors and those in need. Last year, the event raised $50,000 for charity thanks to the attendees and the event sponsors.

The evening includes a dinner buffet, a silent auction featuring a large selection of gift baskets full of gift certificates for services and restaurants, cosmetics, spa treatments, weekend getaways and much more. But don’t forget about the main event—the purse auction. Local male celebrities are picked to model the designer handbags donated by celebrities and local dignitaries. Past purse donors include Dolly Parton, Jennifer Garner, Vanna White and Louise Mandrell. The highest bid gets the bag, so a competitive spirit is welcomed for this great cause.

The North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club encourages the support of locals at the event where fun is all in the bag.
