We are having a PARTY! And we want you to come.
Arrive off Grenfell Street and as you enter the stunning Adelaide Arcade take your complimentary glass of sparkling and meander up the grand Arcade until you hear the music.
Wander around the bags on display and read the stories of a whole range of women and the bags they've carried and where they have been and what they mean.
On this night - Saturday 6 September - be there for the final moments and closing bids of this online fundraising auction. At the event, you can also bid, so please bring an electronic device to be in the bidding.
60 prominent women are participating in this fundraiser, donating bags to raise funds for YWCA of Adelaide's women's leadership work and to help draw attention to Australia's 18.2% gender pay gap.
You will see all of these bags on display, enjoy guest speakers, music, delicious food, and a fundraising bar.
Which bag did Australia's first female Prime Minister take to the Mid Winter Ball? What kind of bag does Westpac CEO Gail Kelly use? Why did Tanya Hosch - Joint Campaign Director of the Recognise Campaign - buy this bag? Why did Susan Carland part with her donation with a heavy heart? What is the story behind Rebecca Morse's bag? Where did Tammy Franks travel with her bag?
Come and find out about all of these stories - and more - and party with us as we celebrate the final night of the Equal Pay Day Handbag Auction.
If you can't be at the party, you can BID on the handbags here: http://www.biddingonline.com.au/auction_items.asp?id=19358

When & Where
YWCA Adelaide's purpose is to build stronger communities through the leadership of women and girls. We do this by supporting them during every step of their leadership journey. The organisation has been working with and for young women in Adelaide since 1880 and is recognised as the leading voice for young women in SA. We deliver programs which focus on early intervention and primary prevention in areas such as young women's leadership, training and employment, health and wellbeing, mentoring and respectful relationships. To do so we partner with schools, government and industry.
