Did you know that in 2012, AOK members helped AFAN raise over $20,000 to help battle the scourge of AIDS? That's right. Many of our members joined forces with the always creative, always fun, always energetic TEAM WINOS to make their 2012 AIDS Walk efforts their most successful to date. We were even given awards for being the largest team, the most creative team AND the highest grossing team.
Never being ones to rest on our laurels, we have huge plans to make our 2013 team even more successful. We kicked off our efforts in October with yard sales on both sides of Town. Now, it is time for Yard Sale PART TWO (just in time for spring cleaning) That's where you come in.
First, we need you to scour every nook and cranny for your unwanted treasures. Come on! You know you have some. That lamp that your Great Aunt Fanny gave you may cause you extreme nausea, but it might be just the thing to complete someone's eclectic living room. Don't worry that it might be too early to pitch in. We'll be collecting for the next two months. We are especially looking for those items that might sell well on Craigslist between now and April. Furniture, computers, you know the stuff that I am talking about. Give Mary-Beth a call at 439-8857 for drop off specifics.
Second, as we get closer to the event, be on the look out for a scheduled tagging day. This is the day that we dump all the bags and boxes to sticker and price. If you want to see an expert merchandiser, be sure to step back and let Denise do her thing.
Lastly, COME SHOP and BRING FRIENDS. After all the decluttering for charity, you deserve some nice new lovelies, right?
SOME VERY SPECIAL VOLUNTEERS WITH TRUCKS ARE NEEDED TO HELP WITH PICK-UPS THROUGHOUT THE VALLEY.
