Huntington University Women’s Auxiliary announces garage sale benefit

The Huntington University Women's Auxiliary announces plans for its 21st annual garage sale benefit. It will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. Oct. 21 and 8 a.m. to noon Oct. 22.

Attracting more than 50 donors, the sale will be in the Huntington University fieldhouse in the Merillat Physical Education and Recreation Complex. The proceeds will benefit the 2011-12 Auxiliary project. The goal is to raise $2,000 to reupholster the furniture in the Roush and Wright halls Lounges.

Donations for the sale will be accepted at the fieldhouse from 3 to 6 p.m. Oct. 20 and 7 to 11 a.m. Oct. 21. Clean, usable items are to be marked clearly with reasonable prices. (Exception: jeans, slacks, shirts, blouses, skirts, sweaters, children's clothes, shoes and books do not need to be marked.)

Furniture, jewelry, household items, bedding, crafts, Christmas décor, records, games, office supplies, gardening and yard items, and even fresh plants or produce are especially useful.

Unsold items are donated to various charities including Habitat for Humanity, Love INC. and the Salvation Army.
