OAK GROVE, KY (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – The Spreading Our Support (SOS) Foundation of the Clarksville Association of Realtors (CAR), and Young Professional Network (YPN) were hosts for the 10th annual Handbags for Hope Saturday at Oak Grove Racing, Gaming and Hotel.

With the theme of Celebrating a Decade of Hope, more than 630 guests enjoyed dinner and entertainment, along with a silent and live auction with proceeds from the event going to the SOS Foundation. Both the silent and live auction featured luxury handbags filled with sponsors products, experiences or services. Since the event began in 2013, more than $1 million has been raised.

The nonprofit Spreading Our Support Foundation, was founded by the Clarksville Association of Realtors as a way to help other nonprofit groups that are in need of support in the community. Some of those organizations include Judy’s Hope, the American Mobility Project and Clarksville Area Urban Ministries SafeHouse, just to name a few.

Sheena Dixon, chair of the YPN committee that organized the event, said around $100,000 was raised with ticket sales, but total figures from the auctions was not available Saturday evening.
