Two Owensboro Colleges Team Up for an Incredible Yard Sale
Bargain hunters! Brescia University and Kentucky Wesleyan College are teaming up for a huge rummage sale coming to Owensboro in September. The event will be staged on the front lawn of KWC and will help raise money for students at both schools who want the opportunity to study abroad.
In May of 2023, students from Brescia and Kentucky Wesleyan will be making the trek to Australia and New Zealand. That trip is open to students and anyone from the community that's interested in going.
In fact, the travel abroad schedule is set for the next few years. In 2023, students are headed to Australia and New Zealand.
In 2024, they're heading off to Asia to visit Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. Then, in 2025, the plan is to visit various countries in Europe, including Germany. Reserving space on the Australia or Asia trip is incredibly easy. The deposit is just $50 to sign up and there are automatic and manual payment plans that allow you to determine how much money you can pay monthly. Balances must be paid in full 60 days before departure.
To help offset some of the travel costs for students, the schools are teaming up for a huge yard sale that will also feature booths from local artisans and some local coffee shops and bakeries. Each will donate portions of their proceeds to the study abroad fund.
The schools are currently seeking donations for the yard sale. If you have something you'd like to donate, you can reach out to Christina Starkey, Associate Professor of Mathematics at KWC (email@example.com) or Molly Gross, who's an Assistant Professor of Humanities (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The schools are accepting furniture, clothing, kids toys, and more. Donations have been pouring in from faculty, staff and students.
The sale will take place Saturday, September 25th from 11am to 3pm on the front lawn of Kentucky Wesleyan College.
