On Saturday, May 7th, local Relay For Life teams will be cleaning out their attics, garages, and closets and bringing those ‘treasures’ to the Kiwanis Building at the Boonville Fairgrounds for the annual Relay For Life Garage Sale Day.

The annual Relay For Life Garage Sale runs from 9 AM – 3 PM and is a chance for local teams to raise funds ahead of the actual Relay For Life event on Saturday & Sunday, May 21st & 22nd from 2 PM to 10 AM at the Boonville Fairgrounds. Any funds the teams raise from their booth at the sale go towards their fundraising totals for this year’s Relay For Life.

“We usually have a number of teams and even some local businesses that take part in the sale,” explains Bob Elinskas, American Cancer Society Staff Partner for the Relay For Life of the North Country, “It’s a great chance for doing some bargain shopping and treasure hunting, while knowing you are supporting the fight against cancer, too!”

If you're family or business is interested in getting a space for the sale, contact Phyllis White, Relay For Life logistics chair, at the NYS Woodsmen Field days’ office at 942-4593 or by cell at 794-5859. The committee will provide each seller with table and chairs and handle all promotion, too. Spaces are limited, so anyone interested should call ahead.
