Partying for a Purpose Presents Champagne & Purses hosted by Attorney King Aminpour

Partying for a Purpose presented the 14th Champagne & Purses hosted by Attorney King Aminpour at the University Club on May 2, 2017.

Over 125 of San Diego’s finest ladies were in attendance and donated new or gently worn shoes, jewelry and purses to donate to teens for Prom. The theme was Denim and Diamonds, so the bling and blues were in full force! VIP guests took home a cool goody bag, were seated on the runway and enjoyed additional complimentary champagne.

Thank you also to our Gold Sponsors : Arthur Q. Johnson Foundation, Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, SOS Entertainment, Legacy Tree and WINK.

Our media sponsor was San Diego Magazine.
