Q: I understand you have cancelled the fundraiser North Ga. Talent Search scheduled for September. Do you still plan to have the Yard Sale and BBQ in October as advertised?
A: Unfortunately, we have cancelled the fundraiser North Ga. Talent Search. This was a difficult decision to make. But our Board of Directors felt it was the best thing to do given the current circumstances and concerns surrounding Covid-19.
We do still plan to have our yearly Yard Sale and BBQ. Tickets will go on sale in September for the BBQ. The Yard Sale will be held at the Pat Haralson Memorial Civic Center on Wellborn Street in Blairsville. The dates for the event are October 2ndand 3rd.
The Yard Sale/ BBQ is our biggest fundraiser; the proceeds of which provide the largest part of our operational budget. It is usually held in the Spring, but as with many things this year it was postponed and rescheduled due to Covid-19 concerns.
We are still accepting donations for the Yard Sale. If you have items you would like to donate please call our offices during our regular hours: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 9am to 4pm. Our number is 706-745-7518.
