Stand with Estela: Purse raffle to benefit Borderland breast cancer patients

Borderland women can donate $20 to win any of these five purses in a raffle.

EL PASO, Texas -- During the month of October, a $20 raffle ticket could land you a $2,000 purse.

"These purses are just amazing," said Estela Casas, former ABC-7 anchor. "Look at this, it's pink inside!"

Shine on El Paso and Bags of Hope partnered with Stand with Estela to launch the October fundraiser.

There are a total of five purses from Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Louis Vuitton and a Christian Louboutin. The price ranges from $400 to $2,000. All proceeds will go to the Stand with Estela fund.

The money all goes to Borderland women fighting breast cancer.

"The moment that I was diagnosed, of course, I had a tough time accepting it," admitted Casas, who started 'Stand with Estela' three years ago. "But I said, 'You know, I do have to go to work. How the community embraced me was absolutely amazing."

"After my breast cancer diagnosis, I wanted to make my mess my message," said Kristin Sizemore, with Bags of Hope. Last year, she and Estela launched the "On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink" campaign.
