'Baubles,Bangles and Bags' benefit

It was a sellout crowd when 300 guests gathered at the Menlo Circus Club in Atherton on Nov. 4 for the Peninsula Volunteers' fifth annual "Baubles, Bangles and Bags" benefit featuring more than 150 designer and vintage handbags.

There was lively bidding over designer bags by Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci and Kate Spade, along with "baubles" by David Yurman and Ippolita and "mystery boxes" filled with special surprises.

Camilla Shroff, Darlene Woodson and Pat Grillos were chairs of the event, which included a morning champagne reception and silent auction, followed by luncheon at 12:30 p.m.

During the afternoon, Judy Padis and her daughter, Alexis Padis-McMunn, of Steve Padis Jewelry in San Francisco entertained the audience with jewelry buying tips for the educated woman.

Proceeds from the fundraiser, which premiered in 2009, benefit the Peninsula Volunteers programs: Meals on Wheels, Little House, and Rosener House Adult Day Services.
