New York–Handbag lovers, philanthropists and fashionistas will once again convene for the annual New York Bag Ladies Luncheon, a fundraising event in New York to support lupus science and support services.

This year’s event will be held at the Plaza Hotel Thursday, April 10.

Last year’s event raised $250,000 for the foundation, and the industry hopes to top that this time around.

Prior to the luncheon, hundreds of guests will mix and mingle among the donated designer (both new and vintage) and celebrity-owned handbags, placing their bids for the silent auction.

Matilda Raffa Cuomo is the honorary chairperson for the event.

To purchase tickets (Junior tickets start at $150 (under 30); Tickets start at $300; Tables for 10 will start at $3,500), or to inquire about donating handbags for the event, contact Sarata Kaba at 212-685-4118 x 40
