Bloomington, IN – November 3, 2016
When the Ellettsville Boys and Girls Club faced the daunting task of moving the club’s operation this past August, Coffey Realty and Auctions stepped up to make the transition a much easier task. After the Ellettsville Club was welcomed by the Ellettsville Christian Church as the new site for the club, difficult decisions had to be made regarding the numerous program items that the club would be moving. Even though the Ellettsville Christian Church welcomed the club with open arms, they could not offer the storage space necessary for all of the items that the club possessed.
After prioritizing which items were to be moved, Coffey Realty and Auction agreed to auction off the seldom-used items at no charge to the club. The proceeds, which totaled nearly $900, allowed the Ellettsville Club to cover the costs associated with the move. Jeff Baldwin, Executive Director, shared, ” The challenges associated with moving the Ellettsville Club were immense. Jimmie Dean Coffey and Matt Arnold were there to lessen the blow considerably. We are forever grateful.”
