By Staff | Sep 16, 2010

Save the Date of Friday, Nov. 5, for the eighth annual ICAN Handbag Happy Hour.
This year’s event will be held at the Miromar Design Center in Estero starting with a 4 p.m. preview of the silent auction items and the party getting under way at 5 p.m.
Donations have already started coming into the ICAN offices with the arrival of an autographed PUCCI handbag from Ms. Gwyneth Paltrow.
In addition CHICO’s FAS has come forward as the first major sponsor of the event and is also designing a one-of-a-kind purse for the live auction.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for corporations and individual business with packages that range from $500 up to $5,000. Handbags have already been donated by retailers such as Dillard’s at Coconut Point, Ralph Lauren at the Waterside Shops and Sak’s 5th Avenue in the Bell Tower.
The Handbag Happy Hour will consist of live and silent auctions plus a grab bag table of previously loved handbags. Tickets will go on sale soon at $75 each and will include admission, an open bar hosted by the Office Pub, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a fashion show.
For additional information on being a sponsor, to make a donation or purchase tickets for this year’s event contact Mitch Haley at (239)-337-2391, extension 211 or by e-mail at mhaley@icanswfl.org.
