The Old Bags Luncheon invites you to join our cause by donating your gently used or new authentic designer handbags. This is not your average donation drive; it’s a glamorous celebration of style and elegance!

The handbags will be up for auction at our premier fundraising event on February 21, 2024 at The Breakers Palm Beach. All proceeds from our signature auction will benefit the Center for Family Services.

Why donate?
You’re not just making room in your closet; you’re making an impact in the lives of people in our community who are on their journey to mental wellness!

Imagine the excitement as fellow fashion enthusiasts bid on coveted designer handbags from Gucci, Chanel, Hermes, Dior, Versace, Valentino, Chloe, YSL and other iconic fashion houses!

But it doesn’t stop there! We gratefully welcome stylish bags from other popular designers like Coach, Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Longchamp, Ferragamo, Burberry, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs just to name a few.

NOTE: If you purchase a new designer bag for the auction, please tape the receipt to the inside of the box. It not only adds value but also provides authenticity to the lucky winner.

We kindly request you to provide an approximate retail value for your donated items. This information will be instrumental in setting our opening bids strategically, ensuring that your contribution garners the attention and appreciation it deserves.

Shipping is FREE! Please contact Robin Gillen at robingillen@gmail.com for your shipping label!
