Dallas based non-profit, Heroes for Children will host their 8th annual Fundraiser, Heroes and Handbags silent auction. This signature event will showcase Designer Handbags that have been donated by Dallas-Area Socialites, Retailers and Designers. Attendees will have the chance to sip on champagne and socialize as they bid on the latest designer handbags, including one created exclusively for Heroes and Handbags by Texas-based fashion designer Elaine Turner. The bag is inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and is topped with a jewel-encrusted crown clasp. This marks the fourth year Turner has designed a bag with all proceeds benefiting Heroes for Children.
Heroes & Handbags is the organization’s largest fundraiser, raising money that directly helps Dallas-area families. A cancer diagnosis affects the whole family, and Heroes for Children’s vision is that no family with a child battling cancer will fight alone, providing assistance to the parents, patient and family as a whole through financial and social assistance programs. In 2012, the Heroes & Handbags event raised more than $300,000.
