Purses with Purpose: Virtual Event

Location: Virtual event

UPDATE - Monday July 27: After careful consideration, the YWCA Enid Board of Directors has chosen to move our Purses with Purpose: Evening Edition event on August 4 to a virtual event only. We had high hopes that by pushing this event off from July until August that it would be safe for us all to gather and celebrate the work of the YWCA as well as celebrate our 100 Year Anniversary. However, we feel that it is the most responsible decision to continue with a virtual event and online auction. Trust that we do not make this decision lightly and that we, like you, are very disappointed that we could not be together for this year's event.

We are very excited to announce that by going virtual we will be able to reach a larger audience with our message as well as utilize the funds from this event in a more direct way. We had already planned to make the purse auction digital using Bidr during the event to allow you to bid using your phone (meaning less contact with pens and each other). Now, guests will be able to access Bidr from the location of your choice and will be notified via text message when you've been outbid. Silent auction purses will open for bidding on Aug 4th and will close on Saturday, Aug 8th.

We invite you to connect with us on Facebook at YWCA Enid for additional updates and a revised schedule of events soon. We are planning to bring you the content - and the purses - completely online. We will also provide instructions on how to get set up with Bidr, so you can start bidding as soon as our purses go live.

Louis Vuitton raffle tickets are still available and the drawing will happen LIVE on Saturday, Aug 8th.

If you have questions, we'd be happy to visit with you. You can contact Ryan Zaloudek, Purse Co-Chair, at [email protected]. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

The funds raised at this event allow us to continue our vital programs and services serving victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. This year, we will be utilizing a portion of the funds to upgrade security features for our domestic violence shelter and building to provide the safest environment possible for our clients.

This year's Louis Vuitton Purse Raffle is a NeoNoe bucket bag in tie-dye monogram canvas for the LV Escale Collection.

Present across Louis Vuitton handbags, shoes and ready-to-wear this season, this unexpected motif is inspired by the Japanese Shibori technique of knotting fabric before dyeing it. A lightweight bag, with a removable strap for a shoulder or cross-body carry.

How to participate:

Tickets are $25 each, or five for $100. Purchase your Raffle Tickets online, at the YWCA office, or from a YWCA Board Member.

By purchasing this raffle ticket, you are supporting victims of domestic violence and sexual assault by providing a safe place to heal. We truly appreciate your support.
