Thank you to everyone who came out to our “Ultimate Yard Sale” benefiting the March for Babies on Saturday!  The fundraiser was a HUGE success–we were able to raise an additional $3,700 towards our Lexus of Richmond team goal!  Click here for more photos.  Lexus of Richmond employees pulled together as a team and donated lots of gently-used items for the sale–everything from furniture and TV’s, to new and used baby items, clothes and more!  We also had a bake sale and car wash to add to the festivities.  We look forward to walking together as Team Lexus of Richmond on Sunday, May 15th in Monroe Park!  Look for our final donation annoucement (we’re still collecting here!) and pictures of the walk next week!  For more information about the Richmond, VA March for Babies walk, click here
