The stuff you no longer need will help fund the cure for breast cancer . . .
Yard Sale for the Cure is an organization that raises money for Breast Cancer research and treatment by holding a massive series of Yard Sales in selected neighbourhoods across Canada. In 2005, the inaugural event was held in the Toronto Beaches. It was a huge success, raised $45 000 and brought people together with a great sense of community and purpose. Now a growing number of people from across Canada are taking on this idea and Yard Sale for the Cure will be launched in markets across the country including Gananoque, Ontario.
The local RE/MAX office, Riverview Realty Ltd., will be hosting one huge sale for the community at their office on King St East in Gananoque. It will begin at 8am and continue all day with a BBQ and refreshments available. They have been asking for local donations of 'treasures' no longer needed and the response has been over whelming.
Sales Representative, Susan Emo, introduced Gananoque to this concept last year by holding a yard sale at her home. "The response was tremendous" says Emo. "People were extremely generous with items donated as well as with the amounts they were willing to spend on items for sale. Many just came along to share their story and donate cash to the cause". "This year I wanted to make it bigger and better and other agents in the office agreed to participate. We have some beautiful items for sale including pottery, crystal, furniture and even a Fischer wood stove!"
Please show your community spirit by coming out, rain or shine, to the RE/MAX building on King St East . . . the coffee will be on for 8am.
If you're thinking about selling, I'd love to meet with you and provide a Market Analysis and go over my Marketing Plan - it is the little things that make the difference.**
