Alexandria’s most popular fundraiser is gearing up for another successful run and we need your junque! Last year, we collected a tractor-trailer of treasures and raised $25,665 for the education programs of Mount Vernon Community School PTA.
We’re gearing up for the 2011 Big Flea, which will be held on April 30th. We will hold two “Shop N Drop” days in 2010: Saturday, November 13 and December 11.
They’re a perfect time to clear clutter and nail down a final 2010 tax break (all donations are tax deductible). Click here for a 2011 schedule and other important information about this year’s event (suitable for framing).
To donate on November 13, please bring your items to 114 E Raymond Ave (b/w Mt. Vernon and Dewitt Avenues, at the back of the Suntrust Bank parking lot). We will hold additional “Shop N Drop” days in Jan-Feb and every Saturday in March and April! Click here for our 2011 schedule of important dates and FAQs.
“The 2010 Big Flea exceeded all our expectations,” said Big Flea wordsmith Joseph LaMountain. “We crushed all our fundraising records and had a record volunteer and shopper turnout. I’m looking forward to another fantastic event in 2011, but we’ll need your help to make it a success.”
For more information about donating, or scheduling a pickup, contact Cynthia Webster at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support! Now let’s get the bug!!!
