Ladies – and some gents, too – battled over Bingo for designer purses at the inaugural Boots, Bags & Bling on Saturday night at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center.
Hosted by the hospital and co-sponsored by the City of Mansfield, the event was a fund-raiser for Methodist Mansfield’s breast cancer center and a fun night out for more than 200 ladies.
Held just outside the hospital’s professional building, the sold-out event featured a Dolly Parton impersonator who sang and got the guests to dance and sing along.
The focus of the evening, though, was the bags from Consuela and Michael Kors to Louis Vuitton. Attendees matched the numbers on the cards for 11 games, hoping to bag a designer purse.
Guests also dined on boiled shrimp, empanadas, sliders and desserts while matching numbers and dropping their names in for multiple raffle items.
“We are so proud to initiate a fun women-focused event with the city of Mansfield for breast cancer awareness,” said Angel Biasatti, director of community and public relations for Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. “The first year was a very successful event with more than 200 women attending as well as sponsors. We were also able to honor our breast cancer survivors and remember those who lost their life to the disease.
“We look forward to hosting the event with the city next year,” she said.
