The Yard Sale in Savannah, Georgia, took place on March 28, 2009, and was a great success!
I am very happy to announce that we, Lucy, Cheryl, Melissa, Nicole, Johnny, Ashley, Edie, and myself, had a successful and fun time during the March 28, Spay Panama’s Animals YES & The Panzi Project Yardsale/Bake-sale. Our gross profit $861.10!
This amount will be divided between these two wonderful organizations, we will send a check via mail as soon as possible.
With an early morning start, 6 am, we packed 6 truck loads filled with donations from local Savannah people. We packed everything from children’s clothes, to shower curtains. Nicole and Johnny baked MANY delicious cupcakes, brownies, and even doggie treats. No one could pass up the different flavored cupcakes and honey/oat doggie treats.
We were all on our toes, from sunrise until 2:00pm. Cheryl and Melissa did a great job during the chaotic check-out, calculating, bagging, calculating, bagging. While Lucy answered many questions from our customers, in spanish and in english, is that not great customer service. Thank goodness for Johnny and Ashley, they were our handy men, assisting with the more heavier objects. Nicole’s tasty treats were literally selling like hot cakes, a lady even came back to the yardsale/bake-sale, to buy a dozen of the cupcakes.
We were all tired by the end, but when we counted all of the money, we felt goooooddddd…….. Our expectations were met, times two…..
We enjoyed every minute of the fundraiser, and hopefully we can make this annual event. Thanks again to all of the volunteers who donated items, and their time for a good cause. See you all at the DOG WASH.
Congratulations to Piera and her fundraising team!
It’s great to hear about your successful event. On behalf of SAFER, I would like to thank you and your volunteer team for all your efforts and support. The money raised will help many women at the Panzi Hospital.
I’m looking forward to your next event!
Yours in solidarity,
