Sam Williamson, local Realtor and Auctioneer hosted a Classic Handbag Gift Night for girls of the Athens Boys and Girls Club. Invitees were invited to select from a large display of classic and vintage handbags. Sam stated: "In the course of liquidating the inventory of a business that dealt in vintage handbags and ladies accessories, I discovered how important handbags are to women. Not only as a utilitarian accessory, but as an expression of ones personal style. Knowing that self esteem can be increased through ones personal style, I decided to do this. These girls are working hard everyday to prepare themselves for a bright and successful future and I wanted to do something special for them for the holidays." Girls form the H.T. Edwards and Joel E Smilow facility attended the event.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens is to inspire and enable all young people - especially those that need us most - to realize their full potential as responsible, caring, and productive citizens.
