Shahina Khatun



Purse-Impression’s “Bags & Brunch”, first annual fundraising event will feature Acoustic Karma live music and a giant silent auction to help rehabilitation graduates start a new life, making a great first impression. The event will take place on Sunday, February 23, at Venues Cafe in Carefree, Arizona, from 11:30 to 15:30.

Mission of Purse-Impressions is simple, but at the same time powerful, “To give graduates of rehabilitation services a purse or backpack that marks their achievements, allowing them to move forward with dignity, strength and knowledge that excite someone.”

Purse-Impressions donated 800 wallets and backpacks to 7 drug treatment centers in AZ, CO, FL and Canada in just 5 months. First annual fundraising will take place on February 23, 2020 at the Venues Café in Carefree AZ.

Suddenly in June 2019, the 28-year-old daughter of the founder, Patricia Brush, tragically died of cirrhosis. Courtney fought addiction and, due to alcohol abuse of years and a heartbreaking to her mother, lost the battle.

Courtney was in and out of the rehabilitation center and noticed that every time while discharging she was given a plastic bag to put individual things in. Courtney thought that by spending time fighting addiction, they merit an option that is superior to a plastic bag.

Tickets for live music are being sold at and only 50 tickets are available for the event. Visitors will enjoy Acoustic Karma live music while they browse through a quiet auction that includes baskets of spa, Italian, games, Zen, golf and fitness, and many others. Original works of art, nights in hotel rooms, designer wallets and jewelry will be auctioned.
