The Final Countdown!

It's the Final Countdown!
Our Fundraiser is in it's last days... only TWO MORE WAKE UPS!

We have been working on lots of details, and they're all (starting) to come together.  Thankfully we have lots of people who have been willing to step in and help, whether from the beginning or just now at the last minute...  If you didn't already volunteer, and have the desire and can donate the time, please leave a comment below, and we'll be sure to have a job for you!

Check out some of the signs we've made to make getting to our event easier...

In case you missed it, our big fundraiser for Rosalie's service dog consists of several parts: Garage Sale, Car Wash, Bake Sale, Hot Dogs and Italian Sodas.

This is going to be a huge deal.  The Garage Sale by itself is already ENORMOUS, and there are lots more people who are still donating items even tomorrow!  We have been graciously loaned the use of two huge CIRCUS TENTS for the event, and they're going to be stuffed to the brim with all sorts of garage sale magic!  Look at the list below...

  • Antiques
  • Art 
  • Baby items - absolutely everything
  • Books
  • Camping supplies
  • Clothing - men's / women's / teens / kids / ALL sizes
  • Collectibles
  • Craft Items - stamps / papers / supplies / and more
  • DVD's
  • Electronics
  • Furniture - couches / chairs / tables / shelves / end tables / benches / TONS
  • Games
  • Holiday decor
  • Housewares
  • Jewelry 
  • Kids stuff - books / toys / movies
  • Kitchenwares 
  • Outdoor items 
  • Shoes 
  • Sporting goods 
  • Tools
  • Toys 
  • TONS more, truly too much to list...

And do you know what the greatest part about this whole thing is?  EVERYTHING listed above was donated!  The Jewett family didn't have to go out looking for the huge stash you see above... lovely people (like you!) just gave from the goodness of their hearts.  That thought has incredibly blessed everyone involved.  You are awesome, all of you donaters... you know who you are!

Speaking of blessings... there are going to be some baked blessings at the event.  This list below has already started making me drool--someone will have to come take these BAKE SALE goodies off our hands, otherwise the results won't be pretty!

  • Brownies
  • Rice Crispies
  • Cookies
  • Monster Cookies
  • Gluten-free Goodies
  • Homemade Fudge Sauce
  • Jam
  • Pies

Oh how that list makes me smile!  I know almost all of the bakers personally, and let me tell you... this stuff is going to be divine.  Simply.Awesome.  (By the way, all the baked goods are donated as well, and if your heart isn't dancing for joy at that amazing fact, I'm not sure what will do the trick!)

So, even if you're not a big garage sale guru, come for the food!  Because the Bake Sale isn't the only food enticement.  We are also going to be grilling HOT DOGS and making custom flavored ITALIAN SODAS.  The weather reports are great for this weekend, and the sun will hopefully put you in the mood for some backyard style refreshment.

We really can't get any better than that... but oh wait, we CAN!

Thanks to a bunch of energetic individuals, we're setting up a CAR WASH station where you leave your vehicle for some TLC while you browse.  How convenient is that?

All in all, this is a really awesome and big deal, and we're hoping you share the information.  We're trying to get the word out as best we can via Craigslist, Facebook, email, etc.  Please help us out by passing it along to your friends, coming with a car-load yourself, or donating some time and energy.

Thanks for stopping by, we hope to see you Friday or Saturday!
