ACVAP presents Ladies Night Out


By Carmen Hubbs
Special to The PREVIEW

The Purse Chronicles is this year’s main event for ACVAP’s Ladies Night Out on May 17at the Ross Aragon Community Center.

Your entertainment for the evening brings you the hilarious film “The Contents of Her Purse”  — an enlightening expedition of women and their purses, what they mean to them, what quirky items theyjust have to have with them at all times, and what they say about women’s fashion, vanity and, most of all, personality.

Then, get ready for the main event, when filmmaker and entertainer Coleen Hubbard conducts a Pagosa first — our very own talk show.

Your purse might win you a prize or, in a moment of excitement, you might feel overwhelmed with the need to reveal just what lurks inside your precious handbag.  Maybe it has a special story or maybe an interesting memory. Maybe something a little more risque?

Fabulous items will be available for your shopping pleasure during silent and live auctions.  Some incredible purses and many have-to-haves that you just can’t do without.  Wonderfully tantalizing hors d’oeuvres will be provided by your favorite local restaurants for a Taste of Pagosa-style experience.  A cash bar with a specialty drink will also be available.

You won’t want to miss this event.  The fun begins at 5:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased for $25 at the Chamber of Commerce, online at, or by calling ACVAP at 264-9075.

This is a fund-raising event for the local domestic violence and sexual assault victim assistance program, a nonprofit organization serving over 450 victims every year.

Come support this vital cause and enjoy the night with all your favorite girlfriends.  And don’t forget to bring the contents of your purse.
