CWC fundraiser features popular outfit accessories

The Chautauqua Women’s Club fundraiser “Open Your Purse and Take Off Your Tie” is from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday in the Athenaeum Hotel. It is a summertime-song-singing fun kind of fundraiser. The song “Buttons and Bows” somehow lends itself as a theme song. Just substitute “purses and ties” for “buttons and bows” and sing along.

“East is east and West is west, And the wrong one I have chose, Let’s go where I’ll keep on wearin’ those frills and flowers and purses and ties.”

The silent auction and sale of 250 donated purses and many ties features a wonderful, almost architectural Judy Lieber evening clutch covered in Swarovski crystals. Other purses by recognized designers such as Coach, Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, Tommy Woods, Tommy Bahama and Salvatore Ferragamo are included.
