Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
The brokers at RE/MAX Suburban, 1808 Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights, Ill., are planning a June 8 sidewalk garage sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of their office, with all proceeds benefitting Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
“We hope many families in the area will turn out to do a little bargain shopping and help a great local institution,” said Mary Zentz, the broker with RE/MAX Suburban who originated the garage sale idea.
“It occurred to me because I’m personally in the process of cleaning out two houses and consolidating them into a single residence. In talking with some of my office colleagues, we realized all of us had many salable items for which we’d like to find new homes, and a joint garage sale would be a good way to do it. Plus, we have been looking for ideas to continue our long-time support for Lurie Children’s Hospital.”
Anyone who has items they would like to contribute to the sale can find out more by contacting Zentz directly at the RE/MAX Suburban office in Arlington Heights, which is at the intersection of Arlington Heights and Palatine roads. She can be reached at 847-707-9507.
“We’re looking for items that would sell for at least $5 each, and would be happy to accept donations meeting that criterion. Anything that isn’t sold on June 8 will be donated to another local charity,” she said.
RE/MAX is a platinum sponsor of Lurie Children's Hospital. RE/MAX associates contributed $129,000 to the hospital last year and more than $2.6 million since it began its releationship with the hospital in 1992.
