Over 150 beautiful new, gently used, and premier designer handbags will be available at Peninsula Volunteers, Inc.’s sixth annual Baubles Bangles and Bags luncheon to be held on November 3, 2014 at the Menlo Circus Club.
An entertaining presentation on fashion by Babette Pinsky of Oakland (pictured) with boutiques across the country including, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York will highlight the event which is co-chaired by Jill Jerrehian, Terri Carville and Kimber Sturm.
Tickets are $125 and available by calling Cathy Duhring at 650-326-0665, ext. 238. Proceeds will benefit Peninsula Volunteers programs: Meals on Wheels; Little House, The Roslyn G. Morris Activity Center; and Rosener House Adult Day Services.
Designer bags by Judith Leiber, Nancy Gonzales, ETRO, and Valentino to name a few, will entice the bargain shopper, and baubles such as a South China Sea Pearl necklace donated by Darlene Woodson of Atherton and intriguing “mystery boxes” filled with special surprises will encourage bidding frenzies.
Bold texture, brilliant style, the Babette line is a locally made clothing collection for women who live with purpose. As a designer, artist of fashion, and producer of timeless “American Made” merchandise since 1968, Babette has been nominated for the 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Award.
