Much Obliged: Garage sale fundraiser was a huge success

Contributed / Metro Newspaper Service

The recent garage sale fundraiser was a huge success. We raised $10,000 toward Caleb's Track Chair — we are two-thirds of the way to our $15,000 goal.

We were moved to tears so many times throughout the sale. The generosity of our friends, family and strangers who donated items to sell was overwhelming then all the people who came out and purchased so many items and donated much more to our cause was a miracle. We pray for each of you and ask that God's blessing will follow you.

Thank you to Frank Lee and Steve Kohls of the Brainerd Dispatch for taking the time to write up an article about the fundraiser. Many people mentioned the article and video when they came out to the garage sale and said it was the reason that they came out to support our son.

Join us for a spaghetti dinner with silent auction at the Woods Event Center/Gather on 3, 19624 County Road 3, Brainerd, 4-7:30 p.m. Aug. 13 featuring Chef Caleb and Sous Chef Matt Annand.

You should each be proud of the part you played in this and never forget the miracle that God has shown for us all! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Chris and Megan Pence and family
