HAMBURG, NY - It all started three years ago when two young girls decided to raise money for a good cause.
Best friends Samantha Bennet and Amanda Kluvek, both 8th graders at Hamburg Middle School, held a large yard sale three summers ago to raise money for Carly's Club. They thought they would only bring in about $500 but that summer they raised close to $1,400.
The following summer, more donations came in and the yard sale raised $4,300. This summer the girls received even more donations for the sale and decided their goal was to raise $5,000!
Roswell Park and Carly's Club keeps the girls updated as to what their money is being spent on. Samantha said so far it has gone towards a fall festival, a Jim Kelly football camp and a mother/daughter spa day.
The girls say they will continue to fill up their garages and family member's garages with donations all year long so they can hold the sale again next year.
The yard sale is taking place at 4989 Armor Drive near South Abbott in Hamburg from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
