This particular event is Marilyn Lawrence’s 10th fund raising venture for Team Diabetes. You can find out more about Team D online at teamdiabetes.ca
Marilyn has an online group that fundraises 24/7 for Team D. This idea came about after a few successful yard sales at her home. She was pondering with a friend about different ideas and that conversation spawned a monster!
The event will be held at the Collingwood legion May 10th. ALL money raised goes to Team Diabetes. There are about 30 volunteers helping with this project including her family and lots of wonderful people she calls friends.
What makes it a wee bit different is the fact that everything is NEW, never used. The items include winter wear, seasonal items, scrap booking, tons of books, children’s toys, pet supplies, wedding supplies, toiletries, baking & kitchen supplies, home decor, boy toys (hardware), footwear, clothing for infants/boys/girls/men/women, jewelry, computer supplies, craft and art supplies and much, much more.
We also have swag bags to give away and every purchase will receive a FREE gift! There is a silent auction going on during the entire sale with some terrific prizes. Marilyn is still collecting them so if you know anyone who can help by donating, please let her know. 705-293-1981
We will have a diabetes education table that will have leaflets and literature courtesy of the CDA and books courtesy of myself. There are currently over 9 million Canadians with diabetes. Insulin is not a cure!
Thanks Marilyn Lawrence and Friends.
