The live auction is the main event and promises not to disappoint! A fine selection of handsome male models will showcase gorgeous designer handbags and purses donated by celebrities and local professionals. The models prance and dance to win the highest bid for their purse from some very competitive lady bidders.

Tickets are $60 per person this year and can be securely purchased online at Purchase early as there are a limited number of tickets available due to heavy sponsorship participation. (Take a peek at last year’s event.)
