Gilda's ClubLooking for a reason to clean out your closet?  Do you have a cute little handbag that wasn’t quite the right shade of pink for that evening gown?  How about a great looking black leather backpack that was all the rage two years ago?  We know someone might want your gently used purses and handbags, so bring them to Seattle’s premiere wine and handbag event, Bags & Bottles, on Sunday, March 14th from 4 – 7pm at the Westin Hotel in Downtown Seattle.

This is a perfect opportunity to donate those purses and handbags for a great cause, Gilda’s Club of Seattle, and maybe find a new one to replace it.  Hundreds of recycled handbags will be up for silent auction and the latest designs from Seattle’s hottest bag stores will be on display for shopping.

Over 25 NW wineries will be showcasing their newest releases to taste and Seattle firefighters will also be on hand to sell and sign their 2010 calendars.

Joan Kelly, from Seattle’s Fashion First Annual Fashion Show, will be the Emcee/Auctioneer for a very lively auction of incredible celebrity handbags.  Yes, celebrities are into recycling too and have donated their slightly used, but still gorgeous, handbags for auction.  Attendees can walk away with a handbag once carried by Carol Burnett, Olivia Newton John, Shawn Johnson, Tina Fey, Sharon Osbourne, Regina King, Lili Taylor, Sweet P, Scarlett Johansson, Rachel Ray, Elisabeth Moss, Aya Sumika, Marcia Cross, author Rebecca Wells or the Indigo Girls’ Amy Ray! And the most unique handbag to be auctioned will be one specially decorated by famed glass artist, Dale Chihuly.

“Bags & Bottles” is a fundraiser for Gilda’s Club of Seattle, a meeting place where men, women and children living with cancer, along with their families, partners and friends, join with others to build social and emotional support. Tickets are $40, and can be purchased at
