Charity is in the bag at Variety's Gladstone fundraiser

IT WAS a hit in 2012, and now Variety - the Children's Charity will once again host the Gladstone Variety Old Bags Lunch.

The fun fusion of fashion and fundraising will be held at the Harvey Road Tavern on August 24, and tickets are already on sale.

It's aimed at ladies who love to lunch, so join in and bring your old handbags which will be donated to a local charity.

Guests will then have the opportunity to add a new bag to their collection before the day is over, with some handbags containing extra special treats in them - such as pampering packages and even holidays.

The gorgeous handbags generally come from designers and manufacturers all over Australia in a range of size, style and colours.

"We will have some amazing prizes and live auction pieces again this year," Variety Queensland regional development manager Carly Quinn said.

"Local business Gregory Jewellers is supporting this event again with a generous donation to be auctioned on the day."

For details, see http://www.variety.org.au/qld or contact Fiona on 0448 600 416 or fionavecchio1@gmail.com to book.

Tickets are $77 and include a two-course lunch and selected wines.
