I just became aware of this organization. It's worth a look:
"On October 15, 2010, Kaiser Permanente presents This Old Bag: The Power of the Purse, the sixth annual celebration of handbags benefiting BCEF. Guests will enjoy appetizers and cocktails while bidding on scores of handbags donated by fashion designers, celebrities and San Francisco’s leading philanthropists. A live auction will showcase the most valuable and coveted bags paired with other exciting items like cruises, dining and entertainment packages, shopping sprees and more!"
