Heroes & Handbags Benefiting Heroes for Children







Glittering, studded, unique, vintage, designer – a silent auction full of amazing handbags, evening clutches, totes and diaper bags help make the Heroes and Handbags Brunch a spring-time favorite. Chairman Jennifer Dix will welcome a sold-out crowd on Thursday, April 9 to the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas for this fifth annual event.

While sipping on mimosas, guests will be able to view the beautiful collection with their friends and bid on them for the first hour and a half. Afterwards, a seated brunch will follow.

Raffle tickets will also be available for purchase for $25 each or five for $100. Raffle packages include:
- 25 Blow-outs at Ceron Salon at Neiman Marcus Downtown. Donated by Ceron Salon. Value $1,375.
- Rainbow moonstone hand-wired earrings with matching vintage necklace with moonstone and natural calcite. Donated by Ashley Montgomery Lyon. Value $550.

Marianne Staubach and her daughters Jennifer Gates, Michelle Grimes, Amy Mentgen and Stephanie Phillips are the Honorary Chairmen. These wonderful ladies have been very generous and involved in the event. Marianne and Roger hosted the Underwriters Party on Thursday, March 4 where a record $84,000 was raised in the Live Auction.

All proceeds benefit Heroes for Children which provides financial and social assistance to families, within the state of Texas, with children ages 0 to 22 years of age battling cancer. Founded in memory of Taylor Anne Brewton and Allison "Allie" Leigh Scott, who both passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia, this agency has given over $2 million to families in need over the past five years. Assistance has ranged from paying rent and electric bills to purchasing a laptop for a child to enable them to continue their schooling while getting treatment.

Sponsorships are available from $25,000 to $500. For more information or to donate, please contact Larissa Linton at llinton@heroesforchildren.org or 214-256-5824.
