Adoption Garage Sale Fundraiser Results
Wow! What a lot of work, but I think it all paid off. Thank you to all of you who donated items for our sale. We truly appreciate everyone's generosity. We were not sure if the weather was going to cooperate so we went the extra effort and set up items on the screened in porch and in the garage. We luckily were able to move most of it out into the driveway later in the day. Saturday morning was freezing and the day didn't get off to a great start, but by mid-morning the sun was shining and temperatures were very nice and we ended up having a great turnout of people. I am extemely happy to report that we made $436.70 total for both Friday and Saturday and it will soon be deposited in to our adoption account. I want to give a special thank you to my mom and dad who put in an endless amount of work in setting up the tables, placing the ad, making signs, and helping in the dreaded clean-up. I know they are glad that it is over as I was bringing over boxes of items over the last couple of months and have been storing it all in their basement. They now have their basement back. We are one step closer to the amount of money that we need to have to pay the country fee once we receive our referral.
