'Purses and Pearls' will benefit the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and is set for November 30th at the Northern Lights Atrium in the Heritage Center.

The annual event will include live music, hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, prize drawings, and a silent auction full of new, designer, and vintage purses, jewelry, and several other gift packages.

A new feature in this year's event is the 'Crave a Cure' dessert tastings competition. Local restaurants and bakeries in the Bismarck-Mandan area will hand out dessert samples. Local celebrities will judge the competition.

The doors will open for the event at 5:30 p.m. The dessert tasting ends at 7 p.m. while the silent auction will end at 8 p.m.

Tickets are priced at $35 and are currently available by calling 701-250-1022 or online at acscan.org/craveacure. You can also email Kim Kuhlmann at Kimberly.Kuhlmann@cancer.org.
