Horizons Savannah hosts Grab a Bag for Kids
A charity luncheon and purse auction

(SAVANNAH, GA) Horizons Savannah will be hosting the 4th annual charity luncheon and purse auction called, “Grab a Bag for Kids.” The event will take place on Friday, Sept. 30 starting at 11 a.m. at the Savannah Golf Club.

The silent auction will begin at 11 a.m. and lunch begins at noon. The tickets are $30 per person or $300 for a table of 10.

“This event is a unique opportunity for people to support Horizons Savannah, spend time with friends and shop for high-end designer bags,” said Christy Edwards, Horizons Savannah Executive Director. “Some brands offered this year are not usually locally available, and all our handbags are special in some way. This is a fun way to support kids in our community.”

This event offers sponsorship opportunities for businesses as well. The different levels include Prada at $250, Dior at $500 and Chanel at $1,000. All of these levels give the businesses name on promotional items with tickets, up to VIP treatment that includes a special gift. For more information on sponsorship, contact Alexis Shin at 912-665-3715.

Horizons is still seeking donations of gently-used vintage and new designer handbags, clutches, evening bags, totes, beach bags, leather backpacks and other nice bags. Contact Horizons to schedule a donation collection.

Recognized as one of America’s best summer learning programs, Horizons Savannah at Savannah Country Day School, Bethesda Academy and St. Andrew’s School welcomes over 200 low-income students each summer to a six-week summer enrichment program that helps prevent “summer slide”: the loss-of-learning that occurs during the summer. By providing a safe and nurturing environment, recreational and cultural activities, nutritious meals and snacks, caring professional teachers and creative, challenging instruction, we unlock a student’s potential to achieve. During the program, students gain an average of two months’ growth in reading and three months’ growth in math.
