Jim Clark, who shared these photos (along with about 150 others), writes: “Spending a couple of hours at Grand Boulevard is always a good time, but attending an event for a great cause is even better. All who attended Purses with a Purpose enjoyed champagne, delicious appetizers, a fun photo booth, plus an opportunity to buy or bid on new and slightly used purses.
“The purses donated by many local businesses and residents again made this year’s event a huge success. Topping off the evening, volunteers and survivors presented a fashion show with designer brand purses.”
Purses with a Purpose benefits Shelter House, a nonprofit center that serves domestic violence and sexual assault victims and survivors in Okaloosa and Walton counties.
