Garage Sale!!


If you'd like to donate any items or goodies for the bake sale, all proceeds go to the Kunze Family. Their family took a hard and unexpected hit this year, Mr Kunze has a rare and unknown disease that is deteriorating his brain, he basically has the mind of a 6 year old. The doctors have no idea what it is. They are definitely feeling the strain financially and the kids are in desperate need of a break from the situation. Any little bit helps.

Accolade Chem-Dry is donating their first set of season tickets to the Bucs Game to their family as way for them (especially the kids) to have a break and just have fun. We are having the bake sale to raise money for parking, concessions, and t-shirts for the kids. If you are able to help us by donating a baked good for our sale I know they would appreciate it.
