It's in the Bag

What girl doesn't want a new handbag?  Especially when that bag helps bring an art into a child's life that normally wouldn't have?  Welcome to P.S. Arts Annual Bag Lunch.

With over 200 designer bags up for grab, guests can either "buy it now" for 20% off the retail price or start the bidding at 60% off the retail price.  100% of the proceeds go to P.S. Arts. And those funds support their program which brings in music, drama, dance and the visual arts to public schools all over the Southern California and Central California area.  Salaried Teaching Artists teach in the school for the entire year, teaching art disciplines to over 11,000 students.  The best justification for shopping!

And the event is always beautiful, this year held at the home of Shanna Brooks in Beverly Hills.  Guests walk the grounds sipping cool beverages and perusing the merchandise.

Sponsored by Dior, guests are also treated to a gourmet "bag lunch" and sit at impromptu spots at tables on the lawn.

Friends, Vicki McCarty Lovine, writer and Kimberly Brooks, artist

This is such a fun and profitable event that I look forward to each year.  I would urge arts organizations to use this as inspiration to host a similar event.  This party is fun, but it is clear that everyone is there to support the cause and celebrate having ARTS IN SCHOOLS!

The beautiful crocodile Francesco Santoro came home with me!
