Weatherford turns out for Bag Lady

It was another “huge success” for the wildly-popular Bag Lady Luncheon, which hosted a packed house at the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse Building. More than 250 ladies turned out for the fifth annual event Thursday benefiting the Parker County Committee on Aging.

For the first time, the event was in October. The title sponsor for the “Spooktacular Affair” was Campbell Clinic. Other sponsors included Plains Capital Bank, sponsor for the entertainer/comic Michelle Thomas. First National Bank sponsored the lunch catered by Whistle Hill Café, and the media sponsor was the Weatherford Star-Telegram. The “Couture Clutch” table sponsors included First Financial Bank, Weatherford Regional Medical Clinic and Amy Mercer. The “Trendy Tote” table sponsors were Renew Home Health, Galbreaith Pickard Funeral Chapel, Texas Bank Financial, Reunion Title, Judge Craig Towson and Judge Lynn Johnson, Tuffy’s Air Condition and Heating Service, Autumn Hill Manor, Jamie Bodiford, Nelda Bell, and Adams and Bennett, Attorneys.

“We are indebted to the wonderful women of Weatherford and Parker County who donated some fabulous new and gently used handbags for our silent auction,” said Susan Baer, Executive Director of the Senior Center. “There were several other special items donated for a live auction, presided over by Shelley Mowery and Bob Glenn. Among the items also auctioned were some wonderfully decadent desserts that were donated by the Zonta Club.”

The event benefited all of the programs of Parker County Committee on Aging, including Meals on Wheels, the Senior Center, case management, transportation, nutritional supplements and assistance with utilities and prescription medications.
