Creating opportunities for children to live and learn in safe, healthy, sustainable environments is key to fighting climate change. Angel Charity for Children is a Tucson-based non-profit organization that was founded in 1983. Their tagline is “Angels Work Miracles” and for over thirty-five years they have been doing exactly that. The organization is comprised of approximately 150 devoted volunteers representing a cross-section of the Tucson Community. Through innovative fundraising, these dedicated ‘Angels’ are committed to providing Pima County’s children with the vibrant future they so richly deserve. And they know how to have fun too! Join us to hear from their General Chairman, Carla Keegan, and Jennifer Coyle, Bags, Baubles and Balls Gowns event chair to learn about a magnificent, VERY GREEN and fun event that is all about re-purposing with a purpose. It’s an evening of shopping new and gently loved handbags, jewelry, shoes, cocktail dresses, ball gowns and more – a true Mrs. Green’s World delight. As a proud sponsor of the Bags, Baubles and Ball Gowns event, Mrs. Green’s World is pleased to bring you this show.
