Horizons Savannah board member Katherine Oxnard Ellis says, “I’ve seen the fabulous bags donated by generous Savannahians, so I can’t wait to start bidding on them! This is a unique event, never before seen in our area, and I know Savannah’s style-conscious and thrifty ladies will really enjoy the bargains to be had at our luncheon. And knowing that every penny spent at the silent and live auctions will help underprivileged kids have an amazing summer enrichment experience? Priceless!"
