Happy Purse-uits

| October 28, 2014 | Parties

The Women’s Metropolitan Arts Council hosted its sixth annual fundraiser, It’s in the Bag!, to benefit Phoenix Art Museum. An impressive 61 lots of designer bags and other items (valued in total at $30,000) attracted 250 guests who enjoyed bidding, dining, listening to great jazz and watching an explosive flamenco performance. Of the four participating restaurants, attendees voted Nook from Arcadia the Best in Food. The luckiest guest of the evening was Barbara Garrity, mother of member Patricia, who won a $1,400 Gucci bag. The event proved you can have a passion for the arts, but you can never have enough designer handbags! –Photos by Haute Photography
