Mother’s Day Purse Auction Suspended This Year Due to Challenging Times
After much discussion and consideration, the Wood Buffalo Food Bank has made the difficult decision to hold off on hosting its annual It’s in the Bag Purse Auction, previously held on Mother’s Day. Due to the challenging economic times that Fort McMurray is currently facing, the organization has decided its efforts could be elsewhere spent in respect to the community and its needs.
We feel it would be best to hold off on the purse auction event this year since it doesn’t really fit into the community’s interests at this point in time. Our efforts will be more effectively spent focusing on our other community engaging events.
We look forward to revisiting the Purse Auction in the future but for now it’s just not the right time.
It’s In the Bag Purse Auction 2015 – Presenting Sponsors
McMurray Girl Magazine, The Sawridge Inn and Conference Center and The Fort McMurray Food Bank hosted their 2nd annual “It’s in the bag” purse auction!
This must-attend occasion has become a popular event with women throughout our region. A sampling of purses, wallets, totes, and other bags become available for bidding during the Mother’s Day Brunch at the Sawridge Inn and Conference Center.
While Diamonds maybe a girl’s best friend Purses are a woman’s lifelong friend. The goal of this event is to raise funds and awareness for the Wood Buffalo Food Bank as they continue to provide food to those less fortunate in this community.
