Announcing a new Meetup for The Baton Rouge Star Trek Meetup Group!

What: Relay for Life Garage and Bake Sale

When: August 29,[masked]:45 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)


Date: August 29, 2009

Time: To be determined

Place: Jennifer's House

All hands on deck! Members and anyone else who wishes to participate, start cleaning out those closets, attics, and kitchens! The USS Corsair will hold a garage sale with all proceeds benefitting the Relay for Life organization.

From the Relay for Life website, "The American Cancer Society Relay for Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated."

Needed items for garage sale setup:

Tables, chairs, clothing racks, containers to put items in, and anything else that you may have to make the garage sale a success! MARK your item(s) so your stuff doesn't get sold or taken by accident.

Needed items to sell at the garage sale:

Clothing (good shape, no stains, tears, or holes), furniture, electronics, books, kitchen items, knick knacks, linens, towels, etc?

I was thinking about selling sodas and water to the customers. They might get thirsty while shopping our "bazaar"! If anyone has ice chests, bring those with ice if you can.

**If you do not have any items to sell, please consider baking cookies, pies, cakes, making candy, etc. Remember to individually wrap your goodies for sale. Also, If you make arts and crafts or make jewelry, that will be welcome too! **

Pricing of Items

Price your items prior to dropping them off. I was thinking about having all clothing sell for assigned prices. (EX: t-shirts $1, dresses $5, etc?) This will cut down on a lot of confusion w/the customers. We have to make this as seamless as possible.

Payment Options

The customers will be able to make a credit card donation via the USS Corsair's Relay for Life webpage. Cash will be accepted as well.


Parking is extremely limited. Carpool with each other if you can. We will meet Friday night to drop off the goods to sell and set up what we can. As more details come up, I will let everyone know. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will answer them the best I can!
