Abby Johnston's Yard Sale has expanded – adding a Silent Auction & Raffle!      

You've all probably heard about the Yard Sale that 10 year old Abby Johnston is having this Saturday, June 24th to raise money to go towards her pledges for this year’s Meaford Harbour 5K Run/Walk, which she participants in annually in memory of her grandparents Bob and Wilda Harding. But what you may not know is the exciting news that she has now added a SILENT AUCTION and RAFFLE ITEMS as well! A kind donor named Jeff Macdonald of Meaford wanted to donate four Blue Jays tickets to support the Meaford Hospital Foundation and, in some way, wanted this gesture to benefit a child as well. Perfect solution! Abby is going to “Silent Auction” off the two pairs of Jays tickets during her yard sale this weekend. But it doesn't stop there! Abby's Mom (Jen) decided it would be a great idea to include Raffle items as well and has been very busy contacting local businesses to see if they might be interested in participating in the event. She has received tremendous support from so many businesses wanting to help support such a worthwhile cause and Abby's young philanthropic spirit! In addition to Jeff  Macdonald’s tickets some of the other businesses donating items for the Raffle include Knights’ of Meaford, AJ’s Hairworks, Simply Unique Flowers and Gifts, E & R Bulk Barn, Ryan’s Repairs (vehicles), Meaford IDA Pharmacy, Ormsby’s Garden Centre, East Coast Wood Turnings (Chuck Lamrock), Big Apple Creative (Dawn Morris), Krystal Klear Photography, Bill’s ValuMart, Golf Garage (Bill Pearson), Reg Noble’s Used Cars….and more to come!

 

Don’t miss out! Here’s the scoop:

Abby’s Yard Sale and Silent Auction/Raffle:

Date: Saturday, June 24th at 8 a.m.      (Rain date: July 22)
