LOVE. It’s everywhere. Sure, it might be kind of hard to see plainly these days. It’s there. It’s in the goodbye hugs we give to our family every morning. It’s in the photos we see streaming through our Facebook feeds. It spills out of the doors at the Ronald McDonald House all day long. It’s all around us. L-O-V-E, LOVE. It’s everywhere, and it’s all you need. Well, except for an amazing handbag.
That’s right, an amazing handbag. Every woman out there needs one. To make her feel empowered, beautiful and ready to tackle the world. It doesn’t have to be expensive, or name-brand to be amazing. It just needs to be full of LOVE. There’s that word again. LOVE. To make a handbag amazing, it needs to represent her fully. It should signify special memories of places she carried it. It is often filled with images of the treasured people in our lives. It may carry a good luck charm or a token that makes us feel confident. It may even be an irreplaceable gift from someone important in our lives.
That amazing handbag is something women everywhere are always in search of. What does this have anything to do with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio? It just so happens that in a couple short weeks, we are offering up the chance to win one of these amazing handbags. On August 4th, the Columbus Ronald McDonald House will host Handbag Hullabaloo. Through many partnerships with area sponsors and the amazing people at Columbus Distributing, we will be giving away 20 (that’s right, TWENTY) beautiful, high-end and functional handbags. Think Gucci, Henri Bendel, Tori Burch, Valentino, Jewell and more… Handbags that are beautiful to start with and welcome the LOVE you will put into them every day they are carried.
I hope you will come out and join us for Handbag Hullabaloo. If you can’t make it in August, we will host four more events this year, including our final event of the year at Saks Fifth Ave. All funds raised from the event will go directly to providing a home-away-from-home for families with a child in our area hospitals. Come out to Scioto Reserve on August 4th, have some fun, win an amazing handbag and give back to a charity that embodies L-O-V-E.
