Consignment sale for a cause in May

The people at Crafters' Exchange (FB LINK)have a consignment sale to support the Fisher House. (Wow. Four links in one sentence).

The Tennessee Fisher House Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to financial, volunteer and emotional support for the residents of the Fisher House located at the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System in Murfreesboro and programs of the Fisher House Foundation. This “home away from home” enables family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time – during hospitalization for a disease, illness or injury. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and their families and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Department of Defense and Department of Veteran Affairs.

The Tennessee Fisher House is located on Alvin C. York VA Medical Center Campus, 3400 Lebanon Pike, Murfreesboro, TN.
The Crafters' Exchange Consignment Sale is free and open to the public. It is being held at the Lane Agri-park. It is open from May 12 at 9:30 AM to May 14 at 3 PM. Yes that does look like it is open for 53 1/2 hours straight, so recheck the time before you go.

We are excited to announce that for this spring sale, the fundraiser we are doing will be for the Fisher House. We are excited to be working with them to raise funds and to donate wish list items to their house in Murfreesboro. A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. To find out more about the Fisher House, check out their website http://www.tennesseefisherhouse.org/ I will post final details about the fundraiser as soon as it's finalized.
