What a great event! A Purse Auction called “It’s In the Bag“, organized by the Antigone Foundation, raising money for WISH, A.W.A.R.E., Soroptimist Internation of Vancouver and the Antigone Foundation. The event was held at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver on May 27, 2011.
Doug Batchelor Photography was on site with a Photobooth, and participants went home with a unique framed portrait.
A few of the purses went up for live auction, led by Fred Lee. He had everyone practice bidding first – “$1000!!!”
Chris Hedlund of Berliosca Cake Boutique created a Sculpted Purse Cake – so realistic that before I realized it was a cake, I reached for the handles to pick it up!
Thanks to Amanda Reaume from The Antigone Foundation for having me on board, and to Jeremy Lim for connecting me with this event.
