Horizons Savannah’s seventh annual charity luncheon and purse auction, Grab a Bag for Kids, will take place at 11AM Fri. Oct. 25 2019, at The Plantation Club at The Landings.

The auction will include gently-used, vintage and new designer handbags, bags from local designers, and special new silent auction packages that include trips, tickets to events and other local and regional items. Pop-up shops from vendors Kendra Scott, J. Parker Ltd. and Charleston Shoe Company will also be at the event, with a portion of all sales donated back to Horizons.

The silent auction will begin at 11AM with lunch and a live auction to follow at noon. Guest speaker Lorna Smith, Horizons National CEO, will share more about Horizons’ national effort to close the opportunity gap for low-income students. Tickets are $40 apiece or $350 to reserve a table of ten.

“This annual event is a wonderful opportunity for guests and supporters to shop for unique items, enjoy the good company of friends and learn more about our work—all while giving back in a big way,” said Christy Edwards, Horizons Savannah executive director, “This is a great way to get together with friends over lunch and be a part of something positive in our community.”

Grab a Bag for Kids offers sponsorship opportunities for businesses as well. The levels include $250, $500, $1,000 and $2,000. Horizons is still accepting donations of new and lightly used designer handbags, as well as gift cards or other experiences for the silent auction.
