Two Skirts: Clutch for the Cause, 7/30 & 7/31!

Two Skirts Telluride hosts”Clutch for the Cause,” a benefit for the San Miguel Resource Center. The event takes place Thursday and Friday, July 30 & July 31, noon-5 p.m. Drop gently used bags at Two Skirts or at the Resource Center in the Camel’s Garden. Bags are priced and resold to benefit the Telluride region’s only nonprofit targeting interpersonal violence. Kristin Holbrook is also offering 20% discount on new Two Skirts’ bags. Proceeds from those sales go to the Resource Center as well. Don’t forget to check out Two Skirt’s new outdoor lounge area. And please remember to wear a mask and shop six feet apart.

The Telluride-based San Miguel Resource Center is the region’s only nonprofit serving victims of interpersonal violence. The mission of the Resource Center 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. Those twin offenses to do not melt away when the snow stops falling. In fact, in the Age of Corona, such evils are on the rise.

The summer fundraising event dubbed “Clutch for the Cause,” created a few years ago by Kristin Holbrook of Two Skirts, takes place this year Thursday and Friday, July 30 and July 31.

The Big Idea is to recycle handbags and raise money (and awareness) for the outstanding work of the Resource Center.



There are various ways you can help.

Start by rummaging through your accessories and bring your old/forgotten/gently used handbags to Two Skirts now. (Bonus: 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.

Been eying those designer bags in the store windows of Two Skirts, now is 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.

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.
