GIANT Garage Sale a huge success – adds 60 Bikes to enable Cambodian Children to go to school!

Volunteers take a brief moment to pose for a photo before finishing setting up for the GIANT GARAGE SALE to benefit children in Cambodia. The Giant Garage Sale, now under the wing of the Rotary Clubs of Gravenhurst & Bracebridge, was held in July and raised more than $3,000 for children of rural Cambodia. This money will be used to purchase bicycles that enable rural kids to get to school and get an education – a truly life changing event for them! Each bicycle costs $50 and they will be distributed by Rotarians and friends in Cambodia in February 2014. If you’d like to donate a bicycle, or join us on the trip to distribute the bicycles, email , or click on the donate button on this page. $50 provides a bicycle to a needy child.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the GIANT GARAGE SALE on July 6th & 7th, and to all of those who donated items to the cause! Many Thanks to the Gravenhurst Seniors Centre and their staff and friends for hosting our sale.
