Ronald McDonald House creates a fun way to make a difference with the Handbag HULLABALOO™ Fundraiser

Every girl deserves a designer handbag. Even better if they can feel good about going home with one while also giving back to their community. On Thursday, March 1, Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities will host its first Handbag HULLABALOO™ fundraiser, where guests will have the opportunity to win up to 30 designer handbags by playing Handbag HULLABALOO raffle games. Jeff Dauler, of Star 94.1’s Jeff and Jenn Show, and Callie Dauler, lifestyle influencer and blogger, will emcee the exclusive event at 6 p.m. at the Intercontinental Buckhead (315 Peachtree Rd. NE, Atlanta 30326). Individual tickets are $100 and a table for 10 is $1,500. Tickets can be purchased here and more information on Handbag HULLABALOO can be found here.

The philanthropic handbag heaven will feature brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Tory Burch, Stella McCartney, Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs. All proceeds from the event benefit Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities and will help keep families with sick children close to each other and near the medical care they need.

"Playing games to win high-end designer bags? SIGN ME UP!” says Callie. “Add the opportunity to be able to support our Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities? You'll see me sprinting down Peachtree to get there! This is a dream event for an outstanding cause."

"We are always excited to help make a difference in our community in any way that we can,” adds Jeff. “If you saw Callie's closet, you'd know why this is such a perfect event for us. All you need is love and lots of purses, apparently!"

"Women love handbags! We are thrilled to introduce this new and unique fundraiser to benefit local families of sick and injured children. Our husband and wife hosts, Jeff and Callie, are sure to make the evening exciting and fun,” says Beth Howell, President and CEO for Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities.
