Save Some Boobies, Buy a Bag! AKA: Patricia Nash Stand up to Breast Cancer Auction

Want to peek into your favorite celebs handbag? How about buy their handbag filled with their on-the-go must-have?  In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, January Jones, Liv Tyler, Giuliana Rancic, Leann Rimes, Vanessa Hudgens, Kristin Chenoweth, Elizabeth Hurley, Maria Menuonos, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Jessica Lowndes, Jennie Garth, Brittany Snow, Garcelle Beauvais, Alison Sweeney, Tori Spelling, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, and Ali Landry have joined handbag designer Patricia Nash to support a worthy cause,  raising money to fight against breast cancer. To kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month, Nash will be auctioning off 18 of her signature Barcellona Saddle Bags signed by these stars and the designer, benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). Each celebrity is auctioning off a signed handbag and some are filling it with their on-the-go must-haves – from lip gloss to sunglasses to their favorite book – so any woman can get a piece of their favorite celeb and feel good about doing it since 100% of proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (now that's some guilt free splurging).  

For the month of October, you can score a Patricia Nash handbag filled with one of your favorite celebrity's must have beauty items—from Estee Lauder to Mally, simply by logging on to PatriciaNashDesigns.com/ubid/ and bidding on the stars signed handbag (prices start at $100). The uBid auction will go live on October 1st through the 31st with 100% of the final bids going toward BCRF, dedicated to the prevention of, and finding a cure for, breast cancer in our lifetime. BCRF offers essential funding for groundbreaking research at leading medical centers around the world, in addition to supporting initiatives that educate the public on maintaining good breast health. Currently, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. There are an estimated 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the United States alone, and Nash sought to do her part to take a stand against the disease and show her solidarity with women all over the world.
