The following weekend, April 22, we had our second used book sale of the year. This time we were at Rewster's Cafe in Logan Square. We sold a number of books and had a great day talking to members of the community about Virtually Home. Amber, a long time volunteer and supporter of Virtually Home, organized this event after dining at Rewster's and thinking what a great place it would be for a book sale! After approaching the manager about the possibility of a book sale she contacted Julie and Cindy, who thought it would be a great idea!
We want to thank Candace and Amber for their dedication to Virtually Home! Neither of these events could have been held without them, in fact both were organized because these ladies took the initiative when they saw an opportunity to help out. Candace knew some of the musicians who played at Rock for Rescue, as well as the owner of The Store, she proposed an idea to them and they all loved it. From there it was just a matter of logistics. Candace and Amber had some great ideas and connections that helped us raise some much needed money and awareness of Virtually Home. If you have any ideas for future fundraising events please let us know, we are always open to new ideas.
