DO GOOD DIVAS’ POPULAR ANNUAL FUNDRAISER GOES DIGITAL
The Do Good Divas are excited to announce that their popular annual fundraiser “A Girls Night Out in Handbag Heaven” has successfully been reinvented as a virtual event this year entitled “Handbag Heaven at Home”. The new virtual event will be held on Thursday October 29th and will include an online auction of fabulous handbags as well as a live broadcast from the Caboto Club.
Proceeds this year will benefit the Covid-19 Assistance Fund at Windsor Regional Hospital to benefit ICU patients and front-line workers. According to the President of the Do Good Divas, Gale Simko-Hatfield, “We have had great support from our sponsors and donors to ensure our fundraiser will offer the same elements that have been enjoyed over the years. Women who are looking for unique quality handbags will not be disappointed!”
A highlight of the handbag event has always been the celebrity handbag donations and this year is no exception. Award winning actress Viola Davis, “How to Get Away with Murder”, donated a twosome; one clutch bag she used, plus a new one for the highest bidder. Other celebrity donations include handbags from leading actress Helene Joy, as Dr. Julia Ogden, accomplished medical specialist, from the popular CBC series “Murdoch Mysteries” as well as Lauren Lee Smith, who stars as the formidable 1920’s female detective in “Frankie Drake Mysteries”.
The mandate of the Do Good Divas is to support local health care programs and services through fundraising. In recognition of their good work in the community, the Provincial Minister of Health, Hon. Christine Elliott has donated a beautiful red leather “Rudsak” handbag sure to please any fashionista! For more information or to purchase tickets, visit their website or email [email protected]
