Bid for Equality - Equal Pay Day Handbag Auction
YWCA of Adelaide is seeking your support in our Bid for Equality. Our major fundraiser this year is a Handbag Auction featuring the donated handbags of more than 50 women. Some of them are trailblazers, some are creators, and some are stars of the future. You can be the proud new owner of a handbag by bidding in the online auction which will open mid August 2014. You can see all of the bags on display - and celebrate the final moments as the auction closes - at a party in Gays Arcade.

All money raised will support YWCA of Adelaide's young women's leadership work. Stay up to date at our Facebook event page, and book your tickets for the 6 September party.

YWCA of Adelaide’s purpose is to build stronger communities through the leadership of women and girls. We do this by supporting them during every step of their leadership journey. The organisation has been working with and for young women in Adelaide since 1880 and is recognised as the leading voice for young women in SA. We deliver programs which focus on early intervention and primary prevention in areas such as young women's leadership, training and employment, mentoring and respectful relationships. To do so we partner with schools, government and industry.
