Adventure Christian Church
Designer purse auction and ladies tea fundraiser aims to help women in crisis.
The Ruth House Annual “Purses of Purpose” Ladies Tea will be held Saturday, March 16, from 9-12:30 p.m. at Adventure Christian Church in Tavares and feature a luncheon, designer purse auction, raffle and speaker.
For five years running, this event has been a major community fundraiser to support the Ruth House, a transitional shelter for women located in Umatilla, Fla. Last year the event raised 12,000 and this year’s goal is $20,000.
According to Ruth House Director, Rebecca Randall, this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a designer purse at a good price as well as support a worthy cause. “If there is a woman in need, we are here to embrace her and help bring her to a place of wholeness,” says Randall.
Tickets for the event are $25 per guest. Participants may also register to be a table host and compete in the table decorating contests. Prizes will be given for the Most Elegant, Most Unique and All Around Favorite table. Set-up begins 8:30 a.m. the day of the tea with judging at 10 a.m. and winners announced shortly after.
Event sponsorships are available with Bronze at $50, Silver $150 and Gold $250.
