We had so much fun representing The Rummage House our non-profit thrift store at this amazing event. This is only the 5th year this event has been held and each year it gets bigger and better. I can’t wait and am so excited to be apart of it again next year. There were tons of amazing vendors, bounce houses, different characters like Elmo, Dora, and Scooby Doo, they had a dunk tank, face painting, a balloon animal guy :), held a raffle for motorcycles, had great food, and Blake from season 6 of American Idol performed, as well they had a talent competition.
There was fun for every person, every age and I felt honored to be apart of this amazing fundraiser.
