The event will also feature a flea market. This will include a designer purse table with brand names including Coach, Liz Claiborne, Gucci, Guess, Louis Vuitton, etc., selling at $5 each. Flea items will sell at prices ranging from $2 to $5. A jewelry table will feature antique as well as contemporary pieces.
The event will also serve as a retirement party for longtime Community Missions Director of Public Relations and Development Don Luce. He joined the agency in 1998, and will celebrate 20 years of service at this year's auction.
