The inaugural Purses for Paws event was held Nov. 12 on the Southside at Primo Banquet and Conference Center. Funds were raised for the Indy Humane Society by patrons with bingo games with prizes that included designer purses and wine bags, all donated. Sponsorships and raffles also added to the funds raised at the Southside event.
Bonnie Gallivan, spokesperson for the Indy Humane Society, said, “This is just a wonderful organization that tries to find homes for homeless animals. We take them in and spay and neuter. We vaccinate them and we find them great homes. That is the point.”
