ALTON — The YWCA is celebrating the relationship between women and their purses by finding homes for 30 designer handbags and accessories.
The YWCA of Alton invites the public to participate in the fourth annual purse raffle. A $10 donation will ensure that participants are in the running for up to 30 purses and accessories. Tickets are on sale through Oct. 31. A designer item will be given away every day in November. Winners’ names go back in the “hat” and they will be eligible for other prizes.
New for 2015, the YWCA is featuring an additional raffle of a Michael Kors purse with accessories in the YWCA persimmon color. Raffle tickets are available for $1 through Nov. 29. The drawing will be held Nov. 30.
Tickets are available from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the YWCA, from YWCA board members and at volunteer locations around Alton. Donations will directly support women’s empowerment initiatives.
Scheffel Boyle P.C., an independent accounting firm, will verify and supervise the drawings.
