Garage Sale To Benefit Tribute Park
A long time Rockaway couple will hold a garage sale at their Belle Harbor home this weekend, a fact that is not unusual in itself because there are many garage sales held in Rockaway each weekend.
The difference is that the money raised by the garage sale being held by Geri and Richard Lipsman will benefit not themselves, but the Rockaway Tribute Park.
"We want to honor the memory of those in the community who were lost on September 11, 2001," Geri Lipsman says. "This won’t be a lot of money, but we love our community and wanted to do something for the park."
The garage sale will be held at 257 Beach 138 Street on Saturday, June 7 from 9 a.m. until noon and on Sunday, June 8 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The couple has lived in Rockaway for more than 27 years. Geri is a local realtor, while her husband is an attorney.
