NORTH OAKS GUILD II RUMMAGE SALE
The members of North Oaks Guild II are now planning their 15th Annual North Oaks Rummage Sale for September 21 and 22, 2013 at the Shoreview Ice Arena. The Guild II Rummage Sale has been called the “Perfect Circle.” People who donate items are able to clear out unwanted but usable items from their homes, business, cabins, and garages – AND individuals with needs are able to buy quality items at a great price – AND all proceeds go to fund programs at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, which are supported by Children’s Hospital Association (CHA). In addition, after the sale concludes on Sunday afternoon, various charities take away remaining items free of charge to give away to those in extreme need. A “Perfect Circle.”
The sale continues to grow every year, and in 2012, around $106,000 was raised and donated to Children’s Hospital Association. During its 47 years, North Oaks Guild II has contributed well over $1,000,000 to CHA. The success of the sale depends on a group of around 70 women whose year-long efforts of planning, hard, work, and organization culminates in the September sale. Volunteers from the community and other Guilds help with sorting the donations in an effort to turn chaos into order.
