Interact Yard Sale April 26th, 2014

On Saturday, April 26th, the Interacters of Beckman, Foothill and Tustin High Schools held their 3rd annual yard sale at the Tustin Senior Center.

After collecting a commercial size truck load of donated items from family, friends and of course many fellow Rotarians, they began their day at 5:30 am and finished at 12:00 pm.

With the help of club members Gerry Aust, Ken La Tourette, Leo Middleton and spouse of Cindy Speer, JR Speer, as well as a couple of close friends of Cindy, they unloaded the truck, set up their area and began selling items almost literally as they were unloading.

The Interacters did a fabulous job of wheeling and dealing for 6 hours straight!  All their hard work paid off, as they were able to raise $1341.00!  The proceeds will go to Water for South Sudan and for serving others in need in their local community.  A portion of the proceeds will also help a student at Tustin High School on the dance team to attend dance camp at UCLA this summer.  She is one of four chosen on her team by UCLA to participate in this exclusive camp.  And, she also worked at the yard sale tirelessly!

I want to thank everyone who donated items to be sold and a big special thank you to those who came and worked at the yard sale.  Gerry, Ken and Leo a shout out for helping with security and Marcy as well for coming out and shopping and supporting the kids!

I am so proud of these awesome group of teens!
