PRIMAVERA PROJECT – Garage Sale Fundraiser

145 Webster St., Petaluma

Saturday, Aug. 24,

8 a.m.- 4 p.m.

WHAT’S HAPPENING? For the second time this year, The Primavera Project is throwing a major garage sale-style fundraiser to build reserves for the nonprofit’s work in the Dominican Republic. Browse among a whole array of one-of-a-kind items. In addition, as a benefit for the Rotary Club’s Lend Me a Hand Program, Carol England will be hosting a second fundraiser titled Transforming Education: One Scarf at a Time,” a sale of gorgeous knitted items.

WHO DOES IT HELP? The Primavera Project raises fund to help girls in the Dominican Republic have access to feminine hygiene supplies, allowing them to remain in school all month long. Girls without access to such supplies, usually from the more economically struggling areas, often miss school due to lack of access. Transforming Education: One Scarf at a Time, is a project created to assist teachers in the Dominican Republic, especially the Puerto Plata area.
