Dear GCTC friends,
I would like to thank Jan Smirnow for coming out to the
Florida Outreach Center for the Blind's Yard Sale this past
Saturday to volunteer in the hot sun, as well as Mindy and
Jarrett Spiroch, and the Petenbrink family for coming out
to support the event. Also, to everyone who brought items
to the Gold Coast Treasure Club's Silent Auction last
Thursday, thank you for supporting NOT ONE, BUT
FOUR not-for-profit organizations through your
generosity! Jan and the GCTC board gave me permission
to load up my Honda CRV with the left over auction
items, which I brought to the Florida Outreach Center for
the Blind to sell in their Yard Sale. The sharing didn't stop
there, though. After the yard sale ended, I brought
everything that didn't sell through the yard sale to two
other local charities to sell in their thrift shops.
Here's how we shared the wealth....
 FIRST, your auction item donations helped raise
money through the GCTC Silent Auction;
 SECOND, remaining items helped the Florida
Outreach Center for the Blind through the
Yard Sale;
 THIRD, remaining items were donated to be sold
through Vita Nova Thrift Shop (helps teens
aging out of foster care through their transition
into independence), and finally,
 FOURTH, what Vita Nova Thrift Shop didn't
take (keyboards, electronics), The Salvation
Army gladly accepted.
Thought you all would like to know how many lives you
touched this week... and you thought all you were doing
was cleaning out your closets!
Thanks, everyone!

Dear Stacey,
I would like to thank you and Janet Smirnow for
volunteering your time to assist with FOCB's Yard Sale on
Saturday. I would also like to thank the members of the Gold
Coast Treasure Club for donating items leftover from their
auction and for attending the event.
Your efforts helped the Center to make approximately
$300 which will be used to fund our programs. We will be
holding another Yard Sale in November and would
appreciate the support of you and your Club. Thanks again
and take care.
