Riptide team holding fundraiser

Garage and bake sale goes Oct. 13 at CVUSC clubhouse

The U14 Riptide boys soccer team is holding a garage/bake sale on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the CVUSC clubhouse at 1701 Lerwick Rd. (next to Isfeld Secondary School) in Courtenay.

Eighteen families are participating in this sale, and all the proceeds will go toward travel and tournament costs for the boys throughout their season.  While this is a sporty bunch and there will be much to sell in the way of sporting goods, there are also many other quality items including furniture, toys, books, household/kitchen ware, lawn/yard, tools, knick-knacks…stuff for all ages and all interests.

Throughout the garage sale, there will a delicious bake sale of homebaked items – including pies and breads – and some of the bakers in this group are not to be missed.

Coffee and hot chocolate will be for sale, and from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. there will also be a barbecue for those who have worked up an appetite while they’ve shopped.

“Please come out and help support Riptide boys’ soccer,” an event spokesperson said.
