Clarksville Association of REALTORSClarksville, TN – The Clarksville Association of Realtors (CAR) will host the fifth annual Handbags For Hope at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center on Saturday, August 4th, 2018.

Handbags for Hope

Handbags For Hope will feature over 200 handbags, wallets, and tote bags for women and men in a silent and live auction. The live auction will feature special “themed” bags with hundreds of dollars worth of special items inside.

“With the money raised, SafeHouse is able to refurbish their facility to provide a safe place for our community members who are affected by domestic abuse to go to when they need assistance,” said Kayla Pierson, 2018 CAR YPN Chair.

Urban Ministry’s SafeHouse for Women is fully staffed 24 hours a day to provide safety, peace, and comfort to local women and children in need.

In addition to SafeHouse, there will also be designated handbags that will exclusively benefit the CAR YPN Mike Groves Memorial Scholarship Fund, which was established to honor the legacy of Mike Groves. Groves was a member of the Clarksville Association of REALTORS® from 1991 until his passing in 2015.

In his 24 years with CAR, Mike served in dozens of leadership roles, including being CAR’s primary REALTOR® Code of Ethics instructor. He was named REALTOR® of the Year in 2001, and was elected to serve as President in 2000 and 2015.

“With these funds the CAR YPN is able to provide multiple scholarships to local seniors attending college. The recipients will be the future innovators, and we want to help them succeed in becoming the next generation of Young Professionals,” said Pierson.

“As Realtors in our community, we feel a strong desire to support Clarksville and Montgomery County in every way we can,” said Pierson. “CAR and its committees are thankful for the support we receive, and that allows us to touch the lives of families in this great community.”

Tickets are on sale and available to the public, but supply is very limited. Advanced tickets are $50.00, or $70.00 the day of the event. To purchase tickets, visit, or email
