The first group, closing at 7:30pm, will include 70 purses (in honor of CEDARS 70th birthday this year!) and the remaining items will close in a second grouping at 8:20pm.
Our 70 for 70 campaign will be highlighted as you have an opportunity to join CEDARS mission in helping vulnerable youth for 70 more years to come!
We will even have a couple of surprises along the way! Platinum Auction (top items) unveiling at 7:20pm and a prize drawing at the end of the evening! You won't want to miss it!
