What

The “Diva Bag Auction” is an interactive giving event started in 2005, where supporters donate a new or like-new handbag that is auctioned to raise funds for Girls For A Change (GFAC) programs. This year’s auction will raise funds for our One Million Reasons to Build campaign. For five years, Girls For A Change has cultivated an empowering Black space built for Black girls to be seen, heard, and celebrated. Now it’s time to own that space.

With the help of donors and sponsors, GFAC will auction designer, sustainable, and vintage handbags to help fund the purchase of our building, cover remodeling costs, and continue services provided by Girls For A Change to our community. Our goal is to raise $350K toward the one million dollar goal.

The Diva Bag Auction will be pre-recorded in Los Angeles and streamed as a virtual event to our 750+ expected attendees in May. We will invite sponsors, celebrity guests, and auction donors to a recording party hosted by Girls For A Change Celebrity Advocate Erica Ash on Saturday, April 9th. 

The pre-recording day will consist of a reception, recording sessions to showcase donated items, a VIP room for mingling with sponsors and celebrity supporters, red carpet photography, fun games, cocktails, and entertainment.

The Diva - On the Inside!

The start of the Diva Bag Auction was to help send girls to Camp Diva many years ago. Our girls know that it's not always about the Diva on the outside - what's most important is the Diva on the inside.

In that spirit, we hope you'll follow along on our Evergreen auction page when the Diva Bag Auction goes live. You will see all of the amazing items, experiences and accessories that make each Diva Bag special inside.
