Organizers say there are so many good treasures, they urge people to get there early. The sale will have everything from furniture, sporting goods, electronics, appliances, household items and toys to clothing and tools. There is a $2 entrance fee and $5 early-bird fee for those who really want to jump ahead and start shopping at 7 a.m. All proceeds benefit the class of 2014.
Open up those wallets to help the Northgate Parent Faculty Club's annual fundraiser March 30. Titled "Spring for education ... Road to academic success," the event will feature a dinner, auction and dance at the Clubhouse at Boundary Oak Golf Course in Walnut Creek. The fun starts at 5:30 p.m. and costs $55 per person.
Money raised at the auction is invested back into the school. Past funding has provided additional hours for the college and career center, technology support and additional class sections.
