Bring a bag, buy a bag, build hope 

The concept is simple:

1. Bring a purse or handbag you once loved to the event (no later than 7:30pm or drop it off ahead of time at Annie McGuire Interiors. Purses & handbags will be auctioned off. If you don't have a bag to bring, don't worry! We have plenty to shop from there.

2. Bid on bags others have brought & take home a new-to-you purse!

There will also be some amazing items as raffle prizes!

The Cause:

Family violence hurts everyone, our children, women, men and families and it shouldn’t hurt to go home.

In partnership with Annie McGuire Interiors we are presenting “HANDBAGS FOR HOPE”. The event will bring together women from the community for an evening of wine tasting, socializing and raising money through bidding on gently loved handbags. Our evening will be complete with live music courtesy of Andrea Case.

The event will benefit the Medicine Hat Women’s Shelter Society's Musasa House, a second stage shelter for women & children fleeing violence. Since opening in 2007, over 200 women have found a safe haven at Musasa House and began their journey of hope and healing. Too often these women are forced to leave their homes with few possessions but armed with hope for their futures. HANDBAGS FOR HOPE wants to raise money to help create a safe and welcoming environment as they work to create a strong vibrant life for their family.

Their new home at Musasa House often signifies the first stage of freedom and hope for a future free from violence. It is our hope that when they walk into their new home, they are wrapped in warmth and hope. Our belief is that we can be part of this step toward helping them move forward to a bright future without violence.
