Yard Sale Fundraiser Helps Local Family

 

As many of you know, over the weekend, The Linda Frierdich Group of Century 21 Advantage, along with Midwest Carpet Cleaning & CKE Construction and Design, sponsored a fundraiser yard sale event for the family of a local young girl with Stage 4 cancer.  This event was a HUGE success, and we would like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped us along the way...



Two of our biggest thanks are extended to the other two businesses who helped us put on this event.  Midwest Carpet and CKE Construction and Design were there through it all, offering their time, business space, and hard work to the event.  

Hope Christian Church- Thank you for letting us invade your parking lot for three days this week, and for all the volunteers you sent our way, as well as the baked goods your congregation contributed to the bake sale.  Having the location we had definitely played such a huge role in the success of this event.

Dr. Cangas & the staff at Illini Pediatrics- Thank you for your support, hard work, donations, and baked goods.  Dr. Cangas came out and volunteered to work the sale on Friday, and he was such a big help.  His team also brought us REALLY nice donations as well as a bunch of goodies for the bake sale.  I think it's worth noting, also, that we never solicited help from Dr. Cangas or his staff.  They heard about the event, and they contacted us to volunteer their time and donations. How awesome is that!?

The EMS crew, who brought us out boxes of gift bags for kids.  Thank you so much to the EMS who brought those out for us and showed their support for the community, but thank you, also, to the mystery donator who made up those gift bags and handmade the stuffed bears that were in them.  You are amazing!

Thank you to The Linda Frierdich Group- This team really came together, donating whatever time they could out of their busy schedules to make this event a success.  What an awesome team we have!

Our amazing community-

Thanks most of all to the people who donated items to our sale and came out to support this local family.  When you hear about a family going through what the Boyers are going through, your heart goes out to them, and the thought, "I wish I could do something" comes to mind.  This event gave the community a chance to do something, and the community came through, tenfold.  All the support, donations, both monetary and through sale items, have warmed our hearts beyond belief.  You make us PROUD to be members of a community that comes together to support one of our own in the way we did.  The sense of community displayed through this event is simply inspiring.
