A successful fundraising sale in Montreal
A very first mega-garage sale encourages the board members of the Association of Montreal Inuit to do more in the future. The mega-garage sale took place on Saturday, June 17, 2006 in Pierrefonds.
In an effort to raise money by selling donated items such as clothing, household items, a bike and much more, AMI made a profit totalling up $655.28. Bargains were made, some people even came strolling back to purchase more items.
It was a very happy and successful day for everyone involved. The profits will go towards the monthly feasts, activities organized for Inuit of Montreal, as well as projects aiming to promote the association.
The garage sale almost didn’t take place because the weather forecast didn’t seem too promising. The organizers decided to go ahead with it anyway, since a lot of people had already been informed about it. At the end, it turned out to be a great day and everybody was pleased.
The board members of AMI would like to thank everyone who so willingly and enthusiastically donated their stuff. The board also extends their gratitude towards Makivik Corp., First Air, Air Inuit and Kativik School Board for donating their promotional items. This fundraising event couldn’t have been successful without your support and contributions.
