The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary added something popular and new for their spring brunch auction: Coach, Kate Spade and Dooney & Burke.

And they sold out the annual event overlooking the lake at Broadmoor West.

The 260 guests, many wearing spring colors on a sunny May 12, were busily outbidding each other at tables filled with handbags and bags of every description, eating a delicious brunch and holding paddles high to bid on selected designer handbags. A Chico’s fashion show featured bright colors of the season.

Money raised will sponsor 40 children ages 6 to 16 for a week at the High Peak Camp in Estes Park and sponsor Summer Day Camp for 40 school-age children.

Brunch co-chairs were Julia McCollum and Jeanette Johnson.
