Bags & Bubbly

Bags & Bubbly Annual Fundraiser

Our annual fundraiser for The Willow School

Friday, March 10th 11:30 am – 2 pm


Bags & Bubbly is a champagne luncheon held each spring at Grand Harbor Golf Club.

At the event, ladies enjoy champagne while they browse the silent auction filled with new and gently used designer handbags, accessories, spa packages and other goodies. The silent auction is followed by a sit down luncheon, live auction and comedian.


This year, our comedian is Dr. Bertice Berry!

Dr. Bertice Berry

Sociologist, Bertice Berry, PhD. is, a best-selling author and award winning lecturer has been named Comedian of The Year, Lecturer of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. She has published 11 best-selling books in both fiction and non-fiction and has won numerous awards and accolades for both her writing and presentations. Berry has had her own nationally syndicated television show and has hosted, interviewed and made numerous television, documentary and radio appearances on a variety of diverse venues including The Tonight Show, Oprah Winfrey, Between The Lions, Crossfire, 20-20, NPR, PBS and Comedy Central and CBN.

Berry has used her unique gifts and talents as a writer and ghost writer for others on a wide range of topics including race and gender issues, sociological studies, stratification, healthcare reform, humor, spirituality, sexuality, slavery and the abolitionist movement, weight loss and wellness, relationships, servant leadership, transformational leadership, diversity and love.

Berry has led parades, had classrooms named after her and has been awarded over 10 honorary doctorates. She earned her own doctoral degree from Kent State University at the age of 26 and still sees her most fulfilling achievement and role in life as that of mother to her 5 adopted children.

“If you ain’t dead, you ain’t done,” a character in one of Berry’s novels says.

Berry believes that every one of us has been given a unique purpose and it is our obligation to find it and use it to improve first our own self and then for those we live and work with.

Bags & Bubbly is one of the best events in Vero Beach and is wonderful to attend.

The funds raised help The Willow School and provide additional monies for scholarships to help children attend this Kindergarten-Grade 8 School.
