Out & About: Heels and Handbags Designer Bag Bingo at Westmoreland County Community College
Buying a new handbag is fun, but competing for it with a roomful of ladies is a whole 'nother thing.
That was the scene on Sept. 21 as a roomful of gals gathered at Westmoreland County Community College near Youngwood for Heels and Handbags Designer Bag Bingo.
The annual party is sponsored by the college's Black Awareness Committee to benefit the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Meritorious Scholarship Fund.
Prizes included handbags, shoulder bags, totes, clutches and backpacks from chi-chi designers like Coach, Michael Kors and Kate Spade.
“They're real, too — there's no knock-offs,” said event committee member Carlotta Paige.
Though the event is advertised as “Heels and Handbags,” Paige said that this year the committee bypassed the footwear to focus on the bags. Watch for shoes to return next year.
Calling the games was Kim Himler, who said she enjoys it so much that she was back for her fourth year.
Along with Paige, event organizers included chairwoman Karen Gandy, Tara Gandy, Gloria Cook, Vicki Hricik, Cynthia Williamson, Tim Robinson, Lori Jacobs and Rod Booker.
