Talk show tomorrow — ‘The Purse Chronicles’


By Carmen Hubbs

Special to The PREVIEW

Yes, it’s true: Pagosa will have a talk-show tomorrow night, May 17, at the Ross Aragon Community Center.

The Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program will entertain you with this year’s Ladies Night event featuring “The Purse Chronicles.”

Denver filmmaker and entertainer Coleen Hubbar, will host this year’s event with her hilarious film “Contents of Her Purse,”  then fully engage you in her theatrical talk show, exploring the depths of women’s purses and what their contents reveal about vanity, necessity and identity.

What does your purse really say about you?

Are we preoccupied with designer handbags, or can people really tell the difference with designer lookalikes?

Are you curious about what men really think about women’s purses?  You’ll hear candid and comical observations, giving you a fun and thought-provoking perspective from a man’s point of view.

You do not want to miss this event.

And, don’t forget, there will be fabulous items available for your shopping pleasure during silent and live auctions — some must-haves to put in your purse, or maybe to cause you to get yourself a new purse.

You won’t want to miss the wonderfully tantalizing hors d’oeuvres provided by  your favorite local restaurants for a Taste of Pagosa-style experience.  A cash bar with a specialty drink will also be available.

Tickets are selling fast.  Don’t miss what women will be talking about for months!

The fun begins at 5:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased for $25 at the Chamber of Commerce, online at, or by calling ACVAP at 264-9075.

This is a fund-raising event for your local domestic violence and sexual assault victim assistance program, a nonprofit organization serving over 450 victims every year.  Come support this vital cause and enjoy the night with all your favorite girlfriends.  And don’t forget to bring the contents of your purse.
