“Annual Red Cross Fundraiser, “In The Bag”, Reaches $100,000 Goal!”

On October the 16th, the In The Bag Steering Committee Women, held their 6th annual silent auction of designer purses benefitting The American Red Cross of the National Capital Region. One of the most distinguished philanthropic events in the metropolitan area, and certainly the place to be if handbags are one of your must-have accessories.

The main focus of the luncheon was a wonderful and dizzying array of handbags. This year the categories offered an astounding collection of purses categorized as Iconic, C-suite, Individualist, Michael Kors and Avant-Garde. The silent auction of these purses brought in an amazing $42,000.

It is impossible to forget the Chanel bag offered as the ICON Raffle purse or the stunning and highly coveted Fendi Trois-Jour leather handbag donated for the Red Bag Raffle. Tickets for these two special purse raffles brought another $8,000.

The incredible raffle packages offered a heart thumping chance to indulge in 17 restaurant dinners, flight simulator on the F-22, or a cruise on the Potomac followed by a Nationals baseball game. The generosity of businesses and individuals who donated these raffle packages ultimately raised $14,200 for the American Red Cross.

Brenda Blisk and the Steering Committee want to extend their thanks to you especially, our primary supporters. This annual charitable event would not be possible without your continued interest and commitment to making it a successful, ongoing fundraising effort to benefit families in need throughout our community. We are thrilled to let you know In the Bag once more netted $100,000. This could not have been achieved without your handbag donations, in-a-flash purchase of raffle tickets and eagerness to bid for one – maybe two or three – special bags you just had to take home!

Thank you for being there to support us and, most especially, extending your support to the American Red Cross.
