Buzz for Bags!

Phew! What a day! The handbags, the shoes, the clothing--it was an incredible event! Numbers aren't ready, but we're working hard to get them completed.

Some buzz started from Park Cities People Blog.....

Just left the Heroes & Handbags event with lots of fun, new things! The amazing silent auction featured all sorts of bags from Balenciaga to Tory Burch. I personally scored two bags (a Burberrys and a St. John) in the silent auction but what is really exciting is what I didn’t have to pay for . . . the goody bags were great! A tote from Wisteria, cute t-shirt, party cups from Bank of Texas (Allan Rayson is the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Heroes for Children and is a Bank of Texas big wig), candle holders and, best of all, Jamie O skincare. This was a first-class event for a first-class cause.

Many Overheardians do the luncheon circuit just like I do. Some of the events are better than others but this event, while sophisticated, had a real family feel to it. Two moms whose children had cancer and received help from Heroes for Children were in the audience. It was moving to see them supporting the organization that gave them so much help.
Kudos to Lucinda Buford who chaired this year’s event and her entire committee who did an amazing job.

I’m off to buy some new shoes to match my new bags . . . .

I know lots of you are just getting back to your homes or offices because most of Park Cities was at the Brook Hollow Golf Club for the Heroes and Handbags luncheon. I’m not going to say too much about it here (a girl’s got to save something for her column), but it was a fantastic and well-attended event (especially for something that started at 8:45 a.m.).
I sat next to the lovely Jamie O’Banion and was thrilled to see more of her beauty products as part of the guests’ goodies. I’m definitely glad I wore waterproof mascara; a video about the children and families struggling with cancer was extremely touching.
Did anyone have the winning bid on a handbag?
