About Handbags

We are thrilled to be back for the 11th Annual Handbags for Hospice event happening on Friday, January 26, 2024! The event will be taking place at the Oxford Auditorium in Woodstock, Ontario. Handbags for Hospice is an annual gala that brings together hundreds of community members for a fun-filled evening with handbags, food, drinks, and laughs! By celebrating the Power of the Purse, funding is raised to support the ongoing operations of VON Sakura Hospice House – a facility that provides palliative care at no cost. The last Handbags event in 2020 was a fabulous fundraising gala filled with success as it raised over $165,000. The impact made by Handbags for Hospice spans across the lives of many to ensure that quality end-of-life care and grief support is accessible to your friends, family and neighbours. Since the first event in 2011, over $1,000,000 has been raised to fund numerous initiatives such as purchasing specialized palliative care equipment, purchasing patient room furniture, and maintaining the ongoing operations of the Child Bereavement Program.

Event Info

The Handbags for Hospice event in 2024 will take place at the Oxford Auditorium on Friday, January 26. It will consist of live and silent auctions with over 350 designer handbags, a wine wall, premium prize raffle and luggage raffle. The evening will once again feature the amazingly-energetic Layne, The Auctionista.
