Employees of Highmark FCU are holding a member-wide Rummage Sale, and the proceeds from renting booth space and from the concession stand are going to benefit the American Heart Association.

The employees of Highmark Federal Credit Union are raising awareness, while raising money, for the local American Heart Association. They are organizing their third annual member-wide “Shop for Treasures” rummage sale on Saturday, June 23, 8:00 am – 2:00 pm in their office parking. The staff will use the proceeds from the rental spaces and a concession stand to raise money for this organization.

“Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in South Dakota,” explains Robin Albers, Executive Director, American Heart Association, Rapid City. “Much of the money raised locally for our organization stays here in South Dakota, supporting research for heart disease. In fact, the American Heart Association currently funds over $1 million in on-going research in our great state,” concludes Albers.  John Carlson, President of Highmark Federal Credit Union, is pleased with the continued commitment of Highmark employees to this worthy cause.

That is why Highmark Federal Credit Union employees are taking their support to the street – or parking lot, rather.  Limited booth space is available for $10 for members of Highmark FCU. This is the perfect alternative for members who want to set-up an individual rummage sale spot in a centralized and convenient spot. Highmark staff will also operate a concession table, with coffee, bottled water, and pastries for a suggested donation. Proceeds from the space rental and a concession stand will benefit the local American Heart Association.

If you prefer the shopping side of rummage sales, plan on stopping by Highmark Federal Credit Union parking lot at 725 5th Street in Rapid City on Saturday, June 23 between 8:00 am – 2:00 pm, for this treasure seeker’s paradise.
