2nd Annual Handbags for Hospice — The 2020 Home Edition

September 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The countdown is on for our 2nd Annual Handbags for Hospice. Join us on Thursday September 24th for this year’s event with a unique twist: The 2020 Home Edition! We’re delighted to share that returning again as Presenting Sponsor are Peter Hansford & Amanda Hansford of BMO Nesbitt Burns.

From the comfort of your home, in gala or ungala attire, with company or as your own date, join us for an amazing evening filled with entertainment, a fabulous selection of designer handbags by silent auction, and a LIVE auction line-up that includes high-end designer bags and experiences so fun, that it’s Hip to be Home!

We are excited to announce Stratford Festival actor and singer Marcus Nance as this year’s honorary host, along with live entertainment from Thorn and Roses, and of course returning once again this year is none other than Philanthro-tainer Layne the Auctionista! Guests will also hear a local family’s personal story and testimonial of why our home away from home and support services are so important.

TICKETS ON SALE: Monday, August 24th at 8:00pm. Your donation of $25.00 per ticket will provide you with a unique link to the virtual event and auction as well as a charitable tax receipt. Don’t forget you cannot attend or shop without this link!

Take this opportunity to get dressed up, order dinner in from one of our local partnering restaurants, raise a glass of bubbly and show your support for those needing the services of Rotary Hospice Stratford Perth.
