The Women’s Club of Costa Rica will begin its 2013 programs with a Mediterranean luncheon at The Aurola Holiday Inn’s Salon Augusto El Grande March 13 at 11 a.m.
“WCCR is one of the oldest, continuously operating service organizations in Costa Rica,” said in-coming president Michele Cote in a release. “2013 marks our 73rd anniversary and we would especially like to invite new members and guests to this, our annual year-opening event.”
A feature of the event will be the sale of a variety of used handbags. Also, participants can enter to win one of two handbags by the designer Tous. These bags were donated by sponsors.
“Select from a great collection of ‘almost new’ handbags and purses – for the beach, the office, evening wear, travel and more,” said a release. “Lots of bargains, with proceeds supporting WCCR’s scholarship program and supplying public school textbooks to students in need.”
The Aurola Holiday Inn is located in San José at Calle 5 and Avenida 5 just north of the Parque Morazán. Luncheon tickets are 12,000 colons, which includes a voucher for parking. Tickets can be purchased by calling 2249-9071.
