Jeeze Louise, hold onto your hats and mark your calendars: on September 19, The Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation in partnership with Carson Pirie Scott will be among the first to kick off October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Held at the Ritz-Carlton, headlined by Miss Goldie Hawn, and hosted by Michelle Friedman, Ashley Hemphill Netzky and Lara Shipp Shiffman, this is the one luncheon of the year that is not-to-be-missed. Proceeds from a silent purse auction they're calling "Purse-sue the Cure" will go toward breast cancer research. The variety of handbags featured in the auction will be new and collectable from boutiques and private collections. [Racked Inbox]
