Nope, not Back to School! Not even Christmas! The Finding Them Homes Annual Garage Sale never fails to be a highlight of our year. Not only does it bring people together, but it’s a fantastic chance to raise funds in support of the rescue.
We started out Day 1 with a front lawn yard sale and then moved onto Day 2 at St. Pete’s. The early morning start of 6 am (!!!) was accompanied by many volunteers and … rain! Fortunately, we had our tent city to protect us from the rain and wind. We made $1100 on day one, a great start to what promised to be a fantastic weekend.
On Day 2 … on top of all the hidden treasures, we also had a bake sale, BBQ, and VIPups. All told, we raised $3244.70 for the rescue. Not bad for one weekend!
Leftover items were brought to the Value Village fundraiser.
