WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The Volunteer Transportation Center’s Posh Purse Palooza was cancelled last year because of the pandemic, but it’s making a comeback.

The VTC’s Jeremiah Papineau said this year’s event will have both in-person and online aspects.

In this fundraiser, people bid on purses – containing gift basket-like items – in a silent-auction format.

The VTC is looking for donations of new or “gently loved” purses as well as donations of items to stuff them with.

The in-person event will be Thursday, May 6 at Garland City Beer Works in Watertown.

A select number of purses will be available for online bidding a week before the event.
