HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Dozens of designer handbags were up for auction at the YWCA of Greater Harrisburg Thursday night.

The non-profit held its ninth annual Pursuit of Justice Purse Auction. The money funds needed legal services.

“Our legal clinic supports victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault and human trafficking. Our legal clinic helps them with attorneys who represent them in court for divorces, protection from abuse orders, custody,”  Mary Quinn, CEO of YWCA of Greater Harrisburg, said.

The legal center assisted 1,300 people last year.

Organizers hoped to raise $20,000.00 from the  event.
