Coach, Dooney & Bourke, Fossil, Vera Bradley – You could be the new owner of these name brand purses! Silver City P.E.O. Chapter BR will host the 7th annual Purse and Silent Auction on Saturday, October 27 at the First Presbyterian Church and Fellowship Hall, 1915 N. Swan Street, in Silver City.
This event opens at noon for a preview of the purses and silent auction items. Light refreshments are served beginning at 12:30. Live auctioning with our most entertaining Dana Stout begins at 1:00 pm. All proceeds benefit the Nancy Champlin P.E.O.

Over 100 purses are auctioned, each one filled with surprises – but no peeking allowed. Silent auction items include Charles Russell prints, Syzygy tile, items from Cooperativa, gift baskets, and a host of gift certificates from favorite local businesses and dining emporia. Tickets are $10 and may be available at the door, but buying tickets in advance is recommended. Contact Pam Weber to buy tickets 575-313-7183.
