“PURSE PARTY” BENEFITING REDLANDS SYMPHONY TO BE HELD ON THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 2015
New and Gently Used Designer Handbags to Be Auctioned During Party Featuring Food, Drinks and Fun
REDLANDS, CA -- An amazing selection of new and gently used designer purses will be offered for sale at this year’s Purse Party benefiting the Redlands Symphony’s music education program for kids and seasonal concerts on Thursday, March 5, 2015.
“This year’s Purse Party will be even bigger and better than last year’s,” according to Ann Bryan, who is one of the organizers of the event. “We had such a tremendous response last year that we’re doing it again and turning up the heat with more purses, more food, and a couple of surprises. It’s a fun time that benefits the Symphony’s music education programs for kids and our regular concert season.”
Members of the organizing committee include Ann Bryan, Kristin Hopkins, Mary Carruthers, Jill Jordan, Nancy Spencer, Marilyn Solter, Margie Orland, Nancy Aplin and Kristin Pierce. Members of the recently organized Friends of Redlands Symphony will be providing volunteers for the event.
“We’re busy organizing dozens and dozens of purses that have come in as donations and many more that are brand new,” explains Kristin Pierce, who is working on both the silent and live auctions. “We have designers such as Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabana and Furla represented in the collection, among many others. There will be lots of extraordinary purses to choose from.”
The Redlands Symphony Purse Party starts at 5 PM and will be held at the home of Jill and Matt Jordan, located at 328 W. Mariposa in Redlands. Shuttle parking pickup service will be available in the parking area located on Halsey (look for the signs). Tickets for the event are $40, and reservations are required. Reservations can be made by calling the symphony office at (909) 748-8018 or by visiting www.RedlandsSymphony.com/Purse.
