This Mother’s Day, The Wood Buffalo Food Bank, in partnership with The Sawridge Inn and Conference Center and media sponsors Mix 103.7 & McMurray Girl Magazine will be hosting our 3rd annual It’s In the Bag Designer Handbag Auction in support of building awareness and raising funds to assist with the operations of The Wood Buffalo Food Bank.  With the dramatic growth our region has experienced, we look forward to this event continuing to be an event that provides women and men a shopping experience they cannot find locally. This event will assist the food bank in ensuring that we have the space, staff, and resources to provide local families with the food they so desperately need.

While diamonds maybe a girl’s best friend, handbags are a woman’s passion! What better day to celebrate thewomen in our lives and treat them and/or ourselves with a much deserved,lavish gift, than Mother’s Day?
