Niagara College to welcome community for first Trunk Sale, Sept. 13

Wish you could visit several different lawn sales in one convenient location? Don’t miss Niagara College’s first-ever Trunk Sale on Sunday, Sept. 13.

The free, family-friendly event will held at the College’s Welland Campus on Sunday, Sept. 13, from noon to 3 p.m. Rain or shine, the public will have the opportunity to browse through trunk sale items offered by various vendors, and purchase some treasures along the way. In addition to the trunk sale, the event will include activities such as face painting, bouncy castles, an inflatable maze; and a barbecue for guests to enjoy.

The Trunk Sale is a fundraiser for the College’s 2015 United Way Campaign. Prior to the event, members of the college community and the public were invited to reserve a spot where they will conduct their sales at the event. While those who sell items at the event keep all the money raised from their sales, funds raised from the reservation of vendor spots will be donated to the United Way of South Niagara.

“The event is a wonderful way for our students to get, and our sellers to get rid of, some great items at a student-friendly price point as we usher in the school year; for the NC community and students to spend a fun day together on our campus; and for all to join together to raise money for a worthy cause,” said Lesley Calvin, manager, Student Engagement and Leadership and co-chair of the College’s 2015-16 United Way Campaign.
