Bargain hunters look for treasures during the Garage Sale to Die For May 14 at the North Thompson Funeral Home. The sale was a fundraiser for the Food Bank and the Hospice Society.

d Bank’s fundraiser, “The Garage Sale to Die For,” was a great success, way beyond anyone’s expectations. It was held in the North Thompson Funeral Home parking lot on Saturday, May 14th. All items were acquired by donation and apparently there were many bargains to be had. Items were purchased through donations as well with the organizers holding the option to call “cheap” if the offer was too low. “Not once did we have to call “cheap” as threatened, although we did come close a couple of times,” said Heather Stanley, Food Bank secretary.

The weather cooperated and provided a beautiful sunny day for the occasion. Over $900 was raised for Clearwater’s Food Bank and Hospice Society to share. At the same time Fields store held a Renovation and Hot Dog Sale. They raised over $100 which they donated to the fundraiser as well.

 

Heather Stanley would like to say, “Thank you to everyone that turned out and a special thank you to those who found nothing to strike their fancy but threw money into the kitty anyway and the lovely man who paid $10 for a fishing lure.”
