Huge Garage Sale to Benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation

By Elise Preston

AMARILLO, TX--The economy is to blame for a short supply of general donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

This weekend, the organization will partner with Cumulus Media for a citywide garage sale, "Jewels, Junk and Treasure."

Nearly 100 local businesses, non-profit organizations and residents will sell all kinds of goods. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Texas Plains Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

Administrators tell NewsChannel 10, the money is much needed. "Unfortunately, some of these kids spend most of their time in hospitals, going from doctor's appointments to treatments.  These kids deserve to be kids, just like everyone else.  A trip to Disney World, or a new toy or TV will really bring them joy." Said Megan Szydloski, the organizations Community Relations specialist. 

Last year, the area chapter was able to grant 50 Panhandle children wishes.  Their year is winding down, and they have almost hit that mark.

The event kicks off Friday morning and runs through Saturday night.  Admission is $5 for adults, kids get in free.
