I got in contact with the organizer of the REMAX/FMSPCA Garage sale; Realtor, Melanie Galea to ask her a few questions on the event comming up.
RE/MAX Fort McMurray is so proud to sponsor this event. We
thank you in advance for donating and coming out to buy goods. This event makes me proud to live in Fort McMurray.
** When is the garage sale & times?:
June 14 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm
June 15 from 8:00am – 12:00pm
** Where will the garage sale be?:
16 Crescent Heights down town off of Hospital street
(Google Map Link Below)
** Why did Remax pick to support the FMSPCA?:
We originally chose because we thought the SPCA needed help. Atthe time there didn’t seem to be a lot of events for it. We’ve considered other charities but I have been a staunch supporter of this event. I am an animal lover, I love that the shelter is NO KILL shelter. Unfortunately, our community needs this service. I find it heart breaking at times how people can just abandon an animal, I don’t get it. This is the best way we can help is by supporting our local community shelter.
** How many years has the FMSPCA/REMAX garage sale
been running for?:
This is our 5th YEAR!!!
** Approx. how much did you raise last year?:
NO APPROX, $4000!!!!

** Items we are looking for:

-MIB will be taking the excess items to Edmonton. We want to make sure the items make their way to new owners, the Salvation Army is overwhelmed with items so we felt this was the best alternative.
– Safeway last year donated items for bbq
– We are looking into doing a 50/50 draw
– This location will become a yearly location
-There will also be a Bottle drive as well, you can bring your bagged bottles and we will take them to Taiga Nova bottle depot to give to SPCA as well.
