Posh Purse Palooza

The Volunteer Transportation Center Foundation has announced the return of its annual Posh Purse Palooza. This event will take place Thursday, May 5, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Garland City Beer Works, 321 Howk St., Watertown. The event will be preceded by an online auction component. This is a silent auction event that features new or gently-used purses filled with various items such as gift certificates, jewelry, bottles of wine, scarves, cosmetics and more. Purses are donated by generous people in the community – either filled with items or without and then stuffed with donations from businesses and other individuals in the community.

Designers have included Coach, Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren, Dooney & Bourke, Vera Bradley, Calvin Klein and others. When donations of purses are received, each is assigned a value along with a value of the contents inside. Guests at the event are then able to place bids in the silent auction of the purses while mingling and enjoying food and drink from Garland City Beer Works.

Garland City Beer Works will feature a signature drink from Tuesday, April 5, until the night of the event on May 5, with $2 from every cocktail to go directly to the VTC Foundation. While there will be again no charge to attend this year, those wishing to bid in person are asked to RSVP by Thursday, April 28, to ensure capacity will not be exceeded. In addition, those attending will be required to follow COVID-19 guidelines for restaurants, if any, at the time of the event.
