Bring your family and friends out for an incredible night of fun, fashion and fundraising to benefit disadvantaged children on Thursday, October 18. For a $5 admission, each participant receives a bidding number, wine, appetizers and the chance to own a designer handbag. A wide selection will be auctioned, with a bag to fit every budget.
The money raised from the auction will benefit the new expansion project from United Way of Greater Greensboro’s Thriving at Three Initiative – “Raising A Reader.” The program specifically assists economically disadvantaged families living in the Greater Greensboro area and provides them with access to a broad collection of high quality, award winning children‘s books for parents to share with their children. By empowering parents as teachers to read to their children and prepare them for a strong start in kindergarten, they will be encouraged as life long learners.
Donations of New and gently used designer handbag may be made at United Way of Greater Greensboro, 1500 Yanceyville Street.
New for 2012! Reserved seating is available with the Girlfriend Package, which includes sponsorship and registration for a table up to six seats, a bottle of champagne, souvenir glasses to keep, and a platter of appetizers for the table to share.
