The Volunteer Transportation Center Foundation has announced the return of its annual Posh Purse Palooza, set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. May 11 at Garland City Beer Works, 321 Howk St.

The event will be preceded by an online auction.

Posh Purse Palooza, which started in 2015, was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic but returned the following year with its in-person event and began incorporating an online auction into its format.

“We’ve seen great success with this combined format over the past couple years,” said Jeremiah S. Papineau, the nonprofit organization’s director of communications and foundation director. “Each year, this event continues to grow and attract a huge crowd. The online component only made it better and able to reach more people.”

Last year’s event raised more than $10,000 to support the services the Volunteer Transportation Center provides to the community.

“Giving people the opportunity to bid on a select number of purses in advance of the in-person auction and making it possible for all purses to be bid on that night online just increased the excitement,” Mr. Papineau said.

That format will be repeated this year, with a select number of purses available for bidding one week in advance of the May 11 event.

Posh Purse Palooza is a silent auction event that features new or gently-used purses filled with various items such as gift certificates, jewelry, bottles of wine, scarves and cosmetics.
