2021 Handbags, Heels & Horsepower Event Raises More Than $75,000 for Pediatric Cancer

Written by Amanda DiFabio, Marketing Coordinator

A few years ago the thought of an event centered around luxury cars, handbags, and heel products to raise money for pediatric cancer was just a creative idea. An idea to bring 2 markets of people together, women and car dealers for the annual Charlotte Auto Show. The Charlotte Auto Show believes in the mission of ISF and continues to work with us annually to make this event even more of a success. 

With a very generous financial donation from the Greater Charlotte Auto Dealers Association and the funds raised during this year’s Handbags, Heels and Horsepower… the event brought in $76,692 for pediatric cancer! We are so grateful and happy that together we pulled off a fantastic event after having to miss out last year. 

On the morning of November 18th, women, husbands, and car dealers alike walked through a sea of cars, balloons, and designer products. There were quite a few show-stopping products from Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, and Gucci all graciously donated for the cause by 2021 sponsor Neiman Marcus. What stood out the most was the exciting and positive energy radiating from the crowd. They knew that they may win a cool holiday gift, but even better, would be helping pediatric cancer efforts. 

Over the last few years, Charlotte Auto Show and Greater Charlotte Auto Dealers Association have raised nearly $365,000 for pediatric cancer efforts right here in Charlotte, NC. Handbags, Heels & Horsepower has become the signature charity event to kick off the annual Charlotte Auto Show, and we love our continued commitment to partnership and bettering the community. This year we must also recognize the sponsors that helped make this event possible: Ally Do It Right, Neiman Marcus, Bank of America. Another special thanks to our volunteers as well who devoted their morning to helping out and supporting such an important cause.

Thank you to everyone who came out and participated in this year’s Handbags, Heels & Horsepower event. We can’t wait to see what next year brings!
