Plans are underway for Family Pathways Forest Lake Thrift Store’s first-ever live auction. Sports memorabilia, furniture, antiques, and home décor is catalogued and ready to be sold at the event which will be held in their store parking lot at 935 So Lake St on Saturday, Sept. 8. All proceeds will benefit Family Pathways food shelves, senior services, and youth programs. Lunch will be available on site as a special fundraiser by the youth program.
Family Pathways would like to thank the community for the items donated for the auction, as well as the daily donations of product at their thrift stores. Another thank you goes out to the many volunteers who share their talents and hard work to make the thrift stores a successful source of funding for the programs.
A special thank you to LeeAnn Vande Kamp, owner of the newly-launched Twin Pines Auction Service, for donating her time and expertise to auctioneer at the event.
Auction Sale bills may be viewed at all 10 Family Pathways Thrift Store locations (Isanti, Cambridge, Princeton, Foley, St. Croix Falls, Hinckley, Pine City, Rush City, Wyoming, and Forest Lake), online at familypathways.org., or on Facebook, keyword: Family Pathways Thrift Stores.
