Purse bash at Sharpsburg VFW to make money for Seneca Area EMS
Seneca Area Emergency Medical Services will be giving out a few late Mother's Day gifts.
The Sharpsburg-based service will host a “purse bash” at noon May 17 at the Sharpsburg Veterans of Foreign Wars post, 1017 Main St.
Tickets cost $40, and 250 will be sold. The event is open to anyone age 18 or older.
The purses that will be awarded include those designed by Michael Kors, Coach and Louis Vuitton, as well as Dooney & Bourke.
Prizes will be awarded every 15 minutes. Winning tickets will be eligible to be picked again, said Sheri Carricato, business manager for Seneca EMS.
“It's not just one time and then you're done with the event,” Carricato said.
The event comes after a toy bash the company held in November.
Carricato said the service wanted to do different types of fundraisers besides the standard gun bash and cash bash.
“We try to do different things to make it more fun,” Carricato said.
The event also will feature baskets with items from Victoria's Secret, Vera Bradley, Yankee Candle and others as part of raffles and a Chinese auction.
Carricato said tickets to the event could be the perfect Mother's Day gift.
“They can go and have a good time with their friends or mingle with the community,” Carricato said.
