Community Self Storage Yard Sale event
to benefit Cape veterans group
The public is invited to a Community Yard Sale Event to be held Saturday, May 21, at Community Self Storage, 3300 Chiquita Blvd., S., in Cape Coral.

The yard-sale focused event begins at 8:30 a.m. and will run until 2 p.m. In addition to a great many yard sale bargains, the event will feature music, raffles, vendors and lots of food. In addition to hot dogs, sausages, and the like, served up by the veterans group, there will be food from Quiznos on Cape Coral Parkway, and Geo’s on Pine Island Road
The fund raiser is one in a series of happenings organized by Edna Quintana, manager of Community Self Storage. “We have a large spacious area and we are the most centrally located storage facility in the Cape. It makes the perfect place to hold events that give back to our community, which is a big part of our corporate philosophy,” said Quintana. “I was raised in the military. My dad served in the Army for 27 years. Consequently, vets are near and dear to my heart, so I’m very excited to invite everyone to come enjoy the fun, festivities and yard sale treasures on this special day!”
Sponsors for the activity include The Resort at Marina Village, Arthur Printing, Costco, City of Cape Coral Economic Development Office.
