LAKE WALES – The Ridge Scenic Highway Corridor Management Entity is seeking new sponsors and those interested in being an official yard sale location for the 11th Annual Ridge Scenic Highway 39-MILE Yard Sale.
This year’s event is slated for Saturday, November 2, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Funds raised from the yard sale go to promote the awareness and beautification of the Ridge Scenic Highway.
Official locations may sell vendor spaces to individuals who want to sell merchandise at their site and are responsible for coordinating those vendors on the day of the event and collecting any vendor fees.
In return, official locations receive a highlighted listing on the event flyer and map, and additionally are featured on the event website and its social media advertising. The official location fee is $100 per site.
“In 2018, there were seven official sites for the yard sale in Haines City, Lake Hamilton, Dundee, Lake Wales and Frostproof. This year, we’re hoping to add more locations to host more vendors. The more the merrier for this fun community event,” CME Chair Jennifer Nanek said.
Current locations include St. Ann Church Columbiettes in Haines City, Town Hall in Lake Hamilton, United Methodist Church in Dundee, Lake of the Hills Clubhouse in Lake Wales, Lake Wales History Museum in Lake Wales, Plantation Inn Realty in Lake Wales, and East Wall Street in Frostproof.
If you would like more information about becoming a sponsor or hosting an official location, please contact Jennifer Nanek at (863) 678-4182, ext. 270, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
