TAC FL Second GARAGE SALE Fundraiser

The Weather Gods had other plans . . .
. . . than the forecasters. Last time we checked at 8 a.m. they predicted:
15% chance of rain between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Well, that should work for us. Just in case of a slight instability our host Imme Kamski decided to have a real "garage" backup to retreat to. And then it came.

9 a.m. - it poured; 10 a.m. - it poured; 11 a.m. - it still poured. And the rest is history. However, to our big surprise, people came despite the weather and happily rumaged through the goodies. From crystal chandelier to guitar, golf clubs, fine china and antique mirrors to childrens toys, handbags, shoes, curtains and a hammock, almost everything was gone by 2:30 p.m. Therefore clean-up was a breeze at 4 p.m. All "leftovers" fit into just two bins. Perfect.

Bottom line: T.A.C. generated a budget of almost $3,000 Dollars, which includes major cash donations for the cause. Yeah! And a very warm, grateful THANK YOU to the donors. We would also like to extend a big thank you to everyone who donated items for us to sell, and our brave volunteers who stood up to the nasty weather. Without you we simply couldn't pull it off.

All proceeds went directly to TAC in full, contributing to gas, batteries,
first-aid supplies, tarps, important technical equipment and the main-
tenance of the all-terrain Pinzgauer vehicle fleet of TAC. Everything that
did not sell, was returned or given to good-will.

TAC FL First GARAGE SALE Fundraiser


The Technical Aid Convoy Florida held their first fundraiser garage
sale on March 28th, 2010. Generous donors rummaged through their
closets and garages looking for anything to spare and gave it to T.A.C.
for this very important event. Bad weather season is around the corner
and TAC is gearing up for whatever it throws at you.

As it turned out anything goes. From popcorn machine to office chair,
china, crystal and stereo equipment, designer clothing, bags and shoes
as well as loads of books, CD's, DVD's and knick knacks. The weather
gods meant well and a lively crowd was willing to spend for the good
cause and most items went before it was even 2 pm.

All proceeds went directly to TAC in full, contributing to gas, batteries,
first-aid supplies, tarps, important technical equipment and the main-
tenance of the all-terrain Pinzgauer vehicle fleet of TAC. Everything that
did not sell, was returned or given to good-will.
