Center for Family Services’ 19th Annual Old Bags Luncheon™ was another sell-out event, gathering 550 guests to support mental health and pyscho-education services for those in our community who would otherwise not be able to afford them.  Honorary Chair and CFS’ board member, Tammy Pompea, says, “The Center’s work is critical to the overall health of Palm Beach County, and I support them because they are committed to excellence.” The Old Bags Luncheon™ is the Center’s largest annual fundraiser. Created in 1998 by the Center’s Palm Beach Auxiliary Guild, the auction event was based on donations of “gently used” designer bags from the closets of many of Palm Beach’s most fashionable women. While it still relies on the generosity of individual donors, the auction now also features new handbags provided by national retailers, designers, and local stores.
