GILFORD — Zoom Fitness in Gilford will be holding a yard sale this Saturday with all of the proceeds to be donated to the Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region.
"I wanted to have a yard sale for charity, the women quickly got on board and the Santa Fund is a great organization to support", said Zoom Fitness Manager Kim Gustafson. "Many area residents aren't aware that the Santa Fund helps people in need year round".
The Santa Fund is perhaps best known for providing new outerwear and boots for local children as winter approaches. They also help children and families with other financial support throughout the year. "Our unofficial slogan is "No matter the season, when there's a reason, the Santa Fund is here to help", said Janet Brough, Santa Fund co-chair.
Zoom Fitness is a circuit training workout club owned, managed and for women. "This is a 30-minute work out designed to fit into the schedules of women who want to be able to zoom in, do their routine and zoom out", said Gustafson.
The charity yard sale is indoor, rain or shine, Saturday October 12 from 8 a.m, to 2 p.m. Located in Paugus Bay Plaza, turn right after China Bistro with plenty of parking in the back. 100% of money raised will be donated to the Santa Fund. For more information call Kim Gustafson at 455-8507.
