CHARLOTTE, N.C. — On Thursday, the Charlotte Auto Show hosted a Handbags, Heels, & Horsepower event in support of a local foundation whose mission is to help kids with cancer.
Officials say the funds raised will benefit the Isabella Santos Foundation, a foundation dedicated to improving rare pediatric cancer treatment options in an effort to increase survival rates of kids with cancer.
At the event, there were dozens of designer handbags and heels, hundreds of beautiful new cars, and bottomless mimosas.
While enjoying the display on the floor of the Charlotte Auto show, attendees were encouraged to buy raffle tickets to contend for their favorite items.
Officials say each manufacturer’s space carried a different designer handbag or pair of heels to win.
Attendees also enjoyed a seated breakfast, included in the price of their ticket, and a presentation from a noted speaker and Erin Santos from the Isabella Santos Foundation.
