Donated items sold for charity

June 24, 2006

Albany -- People who went to the Albany Alzheimers Association today got some good deals, for a good cause. The Association hosted a HUGE garage sale and sold all sorts of donated nick-nacks.

The money raised will go to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Those who came out say it's important to support such a worthy cause.

"My neighbor was diagnosed with the disease and died at an early age, so anytime we can raise awareness to help fight this disease I think it's very important," said Bernictine Tuckes.

Just across the street at the Hand Wash and Detail Carwash, cars were wrapped around the building waiting for a good bath. The business says it supports the cause of alzheimer's research and education. Part of the proceeds from all the cars washed today will go to the Alzheimer's Association.

"We're interested in alzheimers and want to support it because my boss lady, Mrs. Livingston has alzheimers and we want to know all about it that we can and we wanted to support it," said office manager Shar-ree Price.

Items left over from the big garage fundraiser didn't go to waste. They were donated to Habitat for Humanity.
