ERA Martin Associates to Hold Colossal Yard Sale


Originally published Sep 16, 2019

ERA Martin Associates is raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Association.


Team ERA has participated in the WALK to END Alzheimer’s for the last ten years and reached a pinnacle of success as a Top 5 ranked fundraising team in the state of Maryland, 2018. As both the team and fundraising efforts have grown, ERA Martin Associates has found new ways to bring awareness and collect donations for the cause. In 2017, Team ERA held their first YARD SALE to END Alzheimer’s. Now in its third year, the event has not only grown in scale and popularity; it has become a well-organized and planned production.

The YARD SALE to END Alzheimer’s will be held on September 28th, 2019 and Team ERA has already begun collecting donations. The yard sale starts with the collection of “treasures” donated by neighbors, friends, employees, clients, and anyone who has sale-able “stuff” that they no longer wish to keep. ERA Martin Associates is happy to arrange a drop off of goods by calling 410.749.1818, or just stop by during business hours Monday- Friday 8:30 AM – 6 PM and Saturday 10 AM – 4 PM. A pick- up can also be scheduled for large donations ie. furniture, grills, and exercise equipment. Any items remaining from the yard sale are to be donated to HALO.

All funds raised at the yard sale will go to the Alzheimer’s Association as part of Team ERA’s efforts for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The walk is scheduled for Saturday, November 2nd at the MAC Center. Bill Martin is chairing the walk committee again this year.
