Ladies looking for a new designer purse or a fun night out with the girls need to check out Boots, Bags and Bling, Methodist Mansfield Medical Center’s fund-raiser to fight breast cancer.
The event, set for 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10 at the hospital, will feature attendees playing bingo for designer bags, partying with a Dolly Parton lookalike, munching on tasty treats, shopping for jewelry and helping raise funds for mammograms.
“It’s a fund-raiser for the hospital’s breast cancer center,” said Angel Biasatti, director of community and public relations for Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. “All of the money stays here in Mansfield. It will be used to help people in need to get mammograms for early detection, people who couldn’t afford it. We will also pay tribute and honor survivors of breast cancer.”
And it’s going to be a party. Attendees receive 10 bingo cards, one for each round of the game, but can buy extra cards, Biasatti said. Winners of each round will take home a different designer bag, including purses from Louis Vuitton, Consuelo, Michael Kors and Coach.
Kendra Scott’s latest jewelry will also be for sale, with proceeds going to the hospital’s breast center.
While they play and shop, attendees can nibble on shrimp cocktails, barbecue sliders and cheesecake bites. And a Dolly Parton impersonator will sing and socialize. Ladies are invited to wear their boots and best Dolly attire.
“Come have fun and bring your girlfriends,” Biasatti said. “There will be good food, friendship, fun with Dolly and you could win a designer bag. It’s for a good cause.”
Methodist Mansfield Medical Center is partnering with the City of Mansfield for the event, which will be held at the hospital, 2700 E. Broad St. Tickets are $50. For more information on sponsorships or tickets, click here.
