ARLINGTON HEIGHTS — Village Community Services' annual Village Music and Arts garage sale will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 10-13 at 12012 240th St. NE in Arlington Heights.
Donations of new and gently used garage sale items are needed, so potential donors are encouraged to call Village Community Services at 360-653-7752, ext. 14, to arrange for drop-offs or pick-up of their items.
Saturday, May 12, will see a "Voices of the Village" concert and barbecue kick off at 2 p.m. at the garage sale, with lunch served in exchange for donations.
The garage sale proceeds will benefit VCS' Village Music and Arts program, which provides weekly Friday music jam sessions, monthly "Evenings with the Arts" dances and the performance group "Voices of the Village" for people with disabilities.
The majority of Village Music and Arts participants live in Snohomish County, and the band members of "Voices of the Village" perform at community and charity events throughout the region.
Village Music and Arts is funded in part by the Washington State Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the generosity of numerous local donors and volunteers who support the inclusion of people with disabilities in the arts.
