Central "Garage Sale" for local charities and/or PUSD
Original post made

I'm looking for input from our community to see if there would be interest in a monthly or quarterly garage sale. My friend and I see a desperate need to help our local charities, i.e. Shepard's Gate, Open Heart Kitchen, as well as the Pleasanton Unified School District. Our thought is to have a central location each month in a large parking lot or part of the fair grounds. Cars pay a fee for an amount of space to set up their used unwanted treasures. Food vendors would also be invited to "rent" a space for several hours on a Saturday or Sunday. This could be our area's "Craig's List". Sellers would make a profit, shoppers would have one central place to go instead of hopping from garage sale to garage sale, and part of the profits would be donated to local charities. It's very common in Europe. Any comments, ideas, or questions are welcome. This is our initial attempt at organizing this, so I appreciate your input.
