On Saturday, April 30th, Ms. Debra, Suzi, Elodie, and I went to the “Natomas Rummage Sale” at the South Natomas Community Center to fundraise for future events. There we sold gently used clothes, jewelry, house decorations, and cleaning supplies. The things that were sold were kindly donated by the contestants and staff members of Miss Asia Sacramento. We wanted to make sure that we would leave the sale selling everything so we sold all the clothes for $0.50 and home goods for $2. Our booth was the busiest and sold most of our stuff within two hours! By the end of the day we made $117.45 and the few left over items were donated to Goodwill. The $117.45 will be used to fund the “DOGGY DASH” team for the Sacramento SPCA for foster and shelter animals on June 4th.

This rummage sale allowed me to interact with different types of people and was an event that allowed me to practice my communication skills as well.
