Monday: Baubles, Bangles and Bags' benefit

More than 150 new, vintage, designer and celebrity handbags will be featured at the Peninsula Volunteers' fundraiser, "Baubles, Bangles and Bags," to be held Monday, Nov. 12, at the Menlo Circus Club, 190 Park Lane in Atherton.

The PVs also promise an "array of interesting baubles and some intriguing mystery boxes."

Doors open at 10:30 a.m. for a champagne reception and silent auction. Luncheon follows at 12:30 p.m.

Suzie Woodward Morris, founder of Strategic Imaging, will present "Transformations" at 1:30 p.m. Ms. Morris will present her insights and innovations on image and "personal branding."

The benefit is expected to be a sellout, as it has been since the first "Baubles, Bangles and Bags" was held in 2009.

Margo Rafaty and Margaret Day, both of Menlo Park, are co-chairs of the event. Kimber Sturm is the organization's president.

Ticket are $125 general or $200 premium. For more information or reservations, call 326-0665, ext. 238.

For 65 years, Peninsula Volunteers has been a pioneer in senior services on the Peninsula. Each year Peninsula Volunteers contributes more than $5 million in services, including more than 130,000 hot meals through Meals on Wheels. The organization also operates Little House Activity Center, Rosener House Adult Day Services and Peninsula Volunteers Properties, Inc., which provides senior housing.
