Treasure Sale for Be the Choice – August 12

[Be The Choice sale details card]

Our family has recently moved into 202 Northwestern Ave. We love it here!

We are holding a “treasure sale” on Sunday, August 12th from 8-2. We are raising money for an organization called Be the Choice ( that helps breast cancer patients navigate the treatment path. It’s new, it’s innovative, and it’s making a change for the better for patients and their families.

We’re also open (and hoping) for donations, so anyone with anything to give is most welcome to leave it in front of our garage anytime before Sunday morning.

Let me know if you have any questions.

All my best,
