GI Garage Sale a huge success

GI Garage Sale a huge success

On Saturday, May 28, the Grand Isle Community Development Team held it’s 9th Annual Grand Isle 7-Mile Garage Sale and Craft Show.

We believe it was a success on many levels. One garage sale holder raised in excess of $2000 which she donated to Cystic Fibrosis.

The GICDT raised $400 which goes to help pay for the new netting for the Island’s butterfly dome which is one of the free tourist attractions for the island.

While we still don’t have enough money for the net, (the fabric costs $1000 and the Coast Guard puts it up for us), we are planning another fundraiser.

We would like to thank the Gazette for the front-page picture and coverage we were given. It gave us special attention we would not have received. We also want to thank all the participants and attendees who helped make the Grand Isle 7-Mile Garage Sale and Craft Show a success.
