The annual Tailwags and Handbags Springtime luncheon, co-hosted by Buena Vista Winery and supporting Pets Lifeline, is set for April 29.
New and gently used designer purses, fine jewelry, scarves, and other attractive accessories are now being collected by Pets Lifeline. Items for the auction can be dropped off to Pets Lifeline between 2 and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The address for Pets Lifeline is 19686 8th Street East.
We've been doing this for over a decade, and I'm thrilled to be able to"go live again this year, said Nancy King, CEO of Pets Lifeline. All fashionistas and everyone else are encouraged to bring those handbags that have only been used once or twice and are languishing in their closets. This year, wonderful items have begun seeping into the Pets Lifeline collecting site. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the wonders as they arrive.
The auction will begin two weeks prior to the luncheon and end during it. During the luncheon, everything from the auction will be on display at Buena Vista.
Tailwags and Handbags is a significant fund-raising event for the only animal sanctuary in the Sonoma Valley. Pets Lifeline is a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to sheltering and adopting cats and dogs in need in the Sonoma Valley, as well as providing humane education and community programs.
