The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Hosts Its 12th Annual Purse Auction Thursday

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary will host the 12th Annual Purse Auction this Thursday at the Chattanooga Convention Center with doors opening at 10:45 a.m. and live auction beginning at 11:30 a.m.

This year’s guest speaker is a Salvation Army Brainerd Youth, Robin Phinizey who will soon graduate and dreams to pursue full time ministry within The Salvation Army.  Also speaking will be Salvation Army Officer, Major Leona O’Bryant, who grew up attending The Salvation Army East Lake Corps on corner of East 28th Street and 4th Avenue.   

The Women's Auxiliary has been volunteering and raising support for the ministries of The Salvation Army since the mid 1980's. However, their most successful fundraising event to date is their Purse Auction. This year marks twelve years of hosting the Purse Auction; each year has been a sellout.The event has grown so large that the women have moved the event two years ago to The Chattanooga Convention Center located at 1150 Carter St., just two blocks from where The Salvation Army first landed in Chattanooga 123 years ago. 

"The Purse Auction is a Chattanooga favorite and is a fun way for women to come together to learn more about The Salvation Army while bidding on purses filled with lots of goodies," said Associate Area Commander Major Teresa Newsome. "This year we have trips, vacations, spa packages and more. The designer purses that will be auctioned have been filled with jewelry, gift certificates for salon services, dinners, local excursions, summer camps for children, golf packages to name a few."
