Calling all fashionistas, dust your tail feathers off, and get ready to fla-mingle and fundraise because Lydia Place’s annual not-to-miss fashion and philanthropy shopping extravaganza, Handbags for Housing, is back Thursday, September 16th!

Now that we can safely gather together, we, along with our Presenting Sponsor, San Juan Broadband, are ready to dive back in and bring some much-needed fun and r&r to our community with a tropical paradise experience.

This year, you can find us and our special guest emcee, Shannon Day, under the big white cabana, where you and your friends can breeze through our sea of ready-to-bid handbags thoughtfully curated to fit every style and budget. Oh, and we can’t forget to mention the return of our epic handbag bazaar filled with hundreds of bags with prices starting at $5 and up!

Grab your ticket to join us for a fun-filled evening of fashion and fun benefiting Lydia Place programs. Covid-19 precautions and restrictions mean tickets are limited this year, so don’t delay!
