Two Skirts & San Miguel Resource Center: “Clutch for the Cause” 7/10 – 7/12!

Two Skirts Telluride’s “Clutch for the Cause,” a benefit for the San Miguel Resource Center, takes place this year from Wednesday, July 10, through Friday, July 12. The opening reception, July 10, 4 – 7 p.m., features bubbles and bites and cookbook author and lifestyle blogger Marla Meredith. To help, please drop off your oldies, but goodies at Two Skirts starting NOW!

“Because your grandmother’s clutch is another girl’s treasure.”

That’s the tagline of the annual Clutch for a Cause, a benefit for the San Miguel Resource Center.

Telluride-based San Miguel Resource Center is our only nonprofit serving victims of interpersonal violence. The Resource Center’s mission is to eliminate sexual assault and domestic violence in and around the Telluride region and the West End.

Historically, the Resource Center’s only public fundraiser has been the Chocolate Lovers Fling, scheduled on or close to Valentine’s Day to underline the nonprofit’s mission to promote healthy relationships. However, violence and assault are not seasonal occurrences. The twin offenses to do not melt away when the snow stops falling.

The summer fundraising event, created Kristin Holbrook of Two Skirts, takes place this year starting Wednesday, July 10, with a  reception from 4-7 p.m.

The Big Idea is to recycle handbags and raise money (and awareness) for the Resource Center. In addition, through July 12, all Two Skirts’ handbags are on sale for 20% off. The proceeds from those sales are to be donated as well.

There are various ways you can help.

Start by rummaging through your own accessories and bring your old/forgotten handbags to Two Skirts by the 10th. (Bonus for you: a closet cleanse!) Next, stop by the event and purchase any of the 100s of donated bags. There are always designer goodies from Gucci or Prada, vintage treasures in lace and beads, and quirky finds like license plate or cigar box purses. Prices range from $5+ for recycled bags.

If you’ve been eying those designer bags in the store windows of Two Skirts, now is also the time to act. Again, all brand new bags, totes, clutches, and wallets are 20% off during “the Clutch” and Kristin will generously donate the proceeds from those sales too.

So get yourself another bag, new or used, and support a worthwhile cause. You’ll look chicer – and feel good about yourself at multiple levels – because you did.
