Performing Arts Boosters planing indoor yard sale fundraiser; space available

SWARTZ CREEK — Vendors, crafters and anyone looking to sell some of their good junk can rent space at the first indoor rummage sale sponsored by the Swartz Creek Performing Arts Boosters.

The sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 12 at the Performing Arts Center.

A 10-foot by 10-foot space costs $10. Tables rent for $5 each. Vendors and crafters who donate raffle baskets will pay half price for space rental.

Registration forms are available at Sellers also may call 810-591-4231 to register (leave a message and they’ll call back as soon as possible).

Admission to the sale is $1 or a donation of a non-perishable food item for the Swartz Creek Food Basket.

“It’s after Christmas, so they’re going to need (to restock),” said booster President Janet Chima.

About 20 vendors already have signed up. Sellers will have jewelry, paper crafts, soaps, pallet crafts, Pampered Chief products, Avon, Mary Kay and more. Baked goods also will be available for sale.

Chima said the small but dedicated club organized during the 2017-18 school year to raise money for the drama and music departments at Swartz Creek High School and Middle School.

Most of the funds come from concession, with additional funding from sales of show T-shirts. The boosters also will provide the dinner when the High School Drama Department presents “Lost in Yonkers,” a dinner theater production in early February.

“We went in with Mr. (Jared) Leuck on two risers for the choir,” Chima said. “We were tickled pink about that.”

The boosters and Leuck each put in $2,000 toward the cost of the risers.

Much of the proceeds from the boosters’ efforts go toward scholarships to thespian festivals.

“It’s to help the kids,” Chima said.

The boosters also are planning a community game night later in 2019.
