After sorting through and organizing mountains of “stuff” Friday afternoon and evening (the donations were truly overwhelming, thank you so much!), we kicked off our sale at 9am Saturday and enjoyed a steady stream of customers throughout the day. In all we made $4,100 profit (a new record)! None of this would have been possible without your help and support; many thanks to all who donated items, refreshments, or your valuable time to help make this endeavor a success!
Also, many special thanks to band parents Kathleen Brawitsch, Stephanie Buckhout, Maureen DiPierro, Cindy Scinto, and Lisa. Statler, for their tireless organizational, logistical, and advertising expertise!! SPECIAL THANKS to Cindy Scinto for her amazing work organizing all of the parent volunteers and working out so many of our logistical and planning details behind the scenes. SPECIAL THANKS also to Mrs. Statler for working with WHUD to attend and advertise our sale, Kathleen Brawitsch for her work with local businesses to donate food for our volunteers, and Teresa Ryan-Onatzevitch for securing Rita’s Ice to attend. Please thank these local businesses for their generosity the next time you visit: Jake’s Way Back, JV Hot Bagles II, Turco’s, Yorktown Pizza and Pasta, and Rita’s Ice. In addition, SPECIAL THANKS to Maureen DiPierro and Lisa Kyer for securing local charities Big Brothers/Sisters, and Purple Heart, to whom we donated all our remaining items.
