Some lucky ladies left Westmoreland County Community College on June 20 with swanky new handbags.

They were the big winners of Heels and Handbags Designer Bag Bingo, hosted by the college’s Black Awareness Committee.

There were no heels this year, but there were plenty of chic bags to be won, from Coach, Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Vera Bradley, with styles from clutches to cross-body bags to a weekender.

In addition to 12 rounds of bingo, the event included refreshments, raffles and door prizes.

One prize of note was an Evening Out basket, full of gift cards for AMC movies, Dairy Queen, Giant Eagle, Sheetz, Hoss’s Steak & Sea House and Olive Garden. With all that loot, it was probably good for at least two evenings out.

Proceeds from the event support the college’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Meritorious Scholarship Fund.

Event committee members were Karen Gandy, Vicki Hricik, Gloria Cook, Cynthia Williamson, Tim Robinson, Lori Jacobs, Tara Gandy and Carlotta Paige, with assistance from Sarahi Williamson.

Seen: Candy Bates, Nanciann Lisbon, Judy Scheeren, Marlene Lucas, Kristin Stillitano, Jenna Stillitano, Nancy Laskoski, Julie Laskoski, Lauren Farrell, Debi Williams, June Sharp, Michelle Hansel, Gloria Cooper, Denise Holmes, Lurene Moore, Reva Smith, Kim Cook, CynthiaIandiorio, Rebecca Rose, Marianne Guinan and WCCC President Tuesday Stanley with her daughter Lauren Stanley.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
