Heroes and Handbags

This is such a big and exciting week for Heroes for Children!! Thursday, March 29th is our Heroes and Handbags event! It is our premier society event that includes a live and silent auction of designer handbags! In our live auction this year we have some really great items. A Tiger Woods autographed golf bag, a weeks stay at an amazing home in Cabo San Lucas, a beautiful purse and diamond brooch, just to name a few! Check out all the items on our website.
We have an amazing selection of new designer handbags that have been generously donated by stores and vendors across town. We also have a vintage handbag section and a “Ladies of Dallas” section, featuring handbags that were carried by Dallas’s best dressed ladies!
The event begins at 8:30 a.m. with a sneak peak coffee with handbag designer Elaine Turner, followed by the silent and live auction, and brunch. An amazing new video about HFC will also be shown.
We are so grateful to all of our sponsors of this event. Thanks to our underwriters, this event has already generated over $200,000, and we still have the auctions to go! A special thanks to our presenting sponsor, NEXBANK.
This money will have a tremendous impact on the families that we help, and enable us to reach out and help even more.
We have an AMAZING chair, Lucinda Buford. She and her committee have done an outstanding job putting this event together. Many thanks to you all. We are sold out, and expecting over 600 in attendance! It will be a fantastic day for Heroes for Children!!

Yeah!! So excited for tomorrow!

The flowers are set, the signs are hung, and the anxiety is high. We can't wait!

Special thanks to Lucinda Buford for her hardwork as the Event Chair this week. What an excellent job you've done!

Hey, hope the event is a roaring success. Next year maybe you can do an online raffle ala so those of us far away (and cash poor, LOL!) could have a chance to kick in and join the fun!
