Tony Award-winner Joanna Gleason will perform at the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation's second annual New York Bag Ladies Luncheon, to be held on Tuesday, May 4, at 583 Park Avenue in Manhattan. Jill Zarin, star of Bravo's Real Housewives of New York City, will host the event, which will begin at 11am.

Gleason will perform "I Hate My Purse!" a scene from the Off-Broadway hit Love, Loss, and What I Wore by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron. The actress appeared in the show earlier this year.

The luncheon's silent auction of many of today's most sought-after celebrity and designer handbags will raise funds -- and attention -- for the fight against the chronic autoimmune disease, systemic lupus. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on hundreds of bags once carried by celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Julianna Margulies, as well as the latest designs from Chanel, Gucci, Prada, and more.

Individual tickets start at $250. To purchase, call 212-685-4118 or visit
