On Sunday evening, the stars shined brighter than ever for children struggling with life-threatening illnesses. The We Promise Foundation's Red Carpet Celebrity and Designer Handbag Auction came to a close raising a total of $3,162 to help make children’s dreams come true.
The Red Carpet Celebrity and Designer Handbag Auction offered incredible designer handbags and accessories from celebrities including Courteney Cox, Alana Stewart, Kelly Preston, Kristin Cavallari, Megan Kelly, and some world-renowned designers such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Michael Kors and Mary Frances. Courteney Cox’s PRADA messenger handbag and the Salvatore Ferragamo Python Tote handbag were the fan favorites. With all items starting at just $.99, eBay bidders had the opportunity to bag a one-of-a-kind luxury item while making a life-changing difference for kids in the community.
“We were really thrilled with the generosity of the celebrities, design houses, and supporters who donated to the auction,” said We Promise Foundation’s Executive Director, Jill Haag. “Many of them had never participated in one of our events, and it was amazing to have their support as they connected to our cause. When they found out more about We Promise, they were happy to lend a handbag. And with the money we’ve raised, we’re able to make 8-year-old Katelyn’s dream to go to Disney World come true.”
Through the foundation’s partnership with eBay’s GivingWorks, 100% of the final sale of these items will help make dreams come true for children struggling with life-threatening illnesses and severe hardship.
