Funds raised will support Lupus LA’s mission to find the causes of and cure for lupus, while providing support, services and hope to those affected by the autoimmune disease. Presently, 90% of people living with lupus are women. In recognition of that statistic, this year’s Bag Ladies Luncheon will be focused on celebrating our female patients, and will create an environment of beauty, empowerment and strength. A woman with lupus is like a vintage handbag – the scuffs tell her story, the wear makes her wise, the experience makes her a classic, and she is revered by all. The Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon is an opportunity for all women to celebrate the beauty and strength that is born from our challenges.
