As Victoria finished thawing from our week of winter snow, the Fun Finder Team teamed up once again with the amazing organizers for Handbags4Hope!

Handbags4Hope is a fundraiser that collects handbags, scarves, and jewelry and then “upcycles” them for a fantastic evening of shopping and silent auction on February 28th at the Bengal Lounge.  Proceeds from the event support BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and Neuroblastoma Research.

Throughout the day on Sunday, many lovely locals stopped by our tables at Mayfair Shopping Centre with donations of handbags, scarves, and jewelry. There were some very gorgeous, high fashion bags dropped off while the Fun Finder team was there.  If you are looking to re-vamp your bag collection, Handbags4Hope is a great way to do it!

We had the lockbox stocked with prizes from our friends at Artisan Bistro.  Many tried their hand at code-cracking, but it was James and Kiera that stood victorious!

Next weekend, the Fun Finder Team will be downtown enjoying Chinese New Year celebrations.  When you see us, say hi!  You never know what fun and games up our sleeves!
