8th Annual Purse Party Fundraiser
The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast will be hosting its eighth annual Purse Party Luncheon and Auction on April 11, 2016, at the beautiful Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club.
The committee, led by Tammy Calabria and Laura Leighton, has worked diligently to gather new and gently used purses and accessories from local businesses and individuals ranging from top name designers, including Tory Burch, Dooney & Bourke, Gucci, Fendi, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Cole Haan and Coach to name a few. This fabulous collection will be auctioned off to the highest bidder during the silent auction. The Downtown Business Association of Stuart and the Downtown Shopping District has made a huge impact this year with many of them volunteering to show off their unique items during the fashion. Yes, this year’s show will include clothing for children, adults and fabulous seniors.
Part of the proceeds from this event will fund the Museum’s Educational Community Outreach Programs and Scholarship Fund. This program allows teachers to enhance their current curriculum using a hands-on approach to learning. This approach to teaching has proven to ignite creative problem solving techniques that utilizes critical thinking skills while resulting in lasting comprehension. “We appreciate our collaboration with the Treasure Coast Children’s Museum and look forward to continued opportunities. Since the Treasure Coast Children’s Museum visit, the children have carried their developed skills into learning centers and conversations with family members and staff.” Stated Jennifer Corkern Martin County School District Head Start Program.
