VCAF Garage Sale a Success

The VCAF Garage Sale was a tremendous success, raising $1,800 towards the restoration of the Historic Venice Circus Arena. Thank you to all who attended and sifted through our enormous assortment of donated goods! The friendly enthusiasm of the Venice community is a primary motivating factor behind all the Foundation's endeavours. We look forward to working with all of you in future events to restore the Arena as a viable commercial and community event venue for the greater Venice area.

The passion and positivity expressed by all towards our project is a continuing source of inspiration for all our volunteers. Thanks again for participating and stay tuned to our website for upcoming events!
