Handbag Happy Hour Returns; Handbags Sought for November 18 Event
"We are so excited to bring this fabulous event back after a 15-year hiatus," said Pam Cronin, event chair and owner of The Shell Factory and Nature Park. "We have several celebrity handbags and more than 100 new and previously loved handbags from celebrities and local supporters."
Cronin and her committee are currently soliciting new and gently loved handbags, pet items and men's accessories for the event which will be located in the lobby and Players Circle Theatre, located at the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers.
"Slipping into the Season" is the theme for this year's event, which will create the holiday spirit and set the mood for the evening. Adult and holiday beverages and appetizers are included in the ticket price of $50 per person.
