Aubrey Rose Foundation Purses 4 a Purpose

(FOX19) - The Aubrey Rose Foundation recently collected its 1,000th purse for Purses 4 a Purpose, which raises money for families of sick children.

Now they are selling these new and gently-used designer handbags to benefit a great cause.

Purses will be on sale for a discounted price during a June 19 event at Elements Conference and Event Center. The foundation is also giving away a weekend getaway with a 4-Series BMW at the event.

Advanced ticket-buyers also have the opportunity to win a brand new $400 Michael Kors handbag through a raffle drawing.

Anyone who purchases their tickets for the event in advance for $25 no later than June 16 qualifies for the handbag. Tickets can be purchased online or you can mail a check to The Aubrey Rose Foundation (3862 Race Road, Cincinnati OH 45211). Tickets will be reserved at the door on June 19. If tickets don't sell out, they may also be available at the door for $35.

Tickets include appetizers, two drink tickets, raffles and purse giveaways.
