Beautiful bags are all in a day’s work for Elaine Turner, but beautiful bags for an important cause are especially meaningful.
Elaine’s relationship with Heroes for Children, an organization that advocates for and provides financial and social assistance to families with children battling cancer, strengthens every year.
For the 2014 fundraiser luncheons, “Heroes and Handbags” in Houston and Dallas, Elaine created the Bella clutch in python, a perennial favorite among Elaine Turner shoppers. The bags are sold on the Heroes for Children website and at the luncheons, with proceeds benefitting the charity.
The organization’s “Heroes and Handbags” go beyond a typical fundraiser luncheon. Guests have the opportunity bid on a variety of designer bags before the luncheon, and of course, guests always come accessorized with the very best handbags from their personal collections.
To further support the organization, Elaine donated a selection of minaudieres, clutches, shoulder bags, totes and tech items to the auctions in Houston and Dallas.
For a sneak peek at what Elaine donated, don’t miss the Heroes for Handbags kickoff cocktail party at Elaine’s Rice Village boutique, Thursday, April 24 from 6-8 p.m. Champagne and shopping for a good cause? Yes please!
