Thank you, Humboldt County,
for making our
"Grand Finale" 
Rummage Sale such a HUGE success!
Sadly, after more than 55 years, Humboldt Sponsors has decided that this will be our last rummage sale. We have made this difficult decision after long and careful consideration of several factors: mainly,
the loss of our storage facility lease, the ever-increasing costs, and the time and effort involved 
in preparing for and holding the sale.
We truly appreciate our local community's enthusiastic support of this popular annual fundraiser over so many years.
You have helped us provide much needed programs, services and activities
for thousands of Humboldt County kids!
