New and gently-used merchandise, including antiques, furniture, sporting equipment, holiday décor, kitchen appliances, toys, computer ware, books and clothing will be sold to raise money for 17 local charities.

The Thursday Club, a group of volunteers dedicated to educational, cultural and civic community involvement and leadership for more than 90 years in San Diego, has returned well over $1.5 million to the community through club activities. Each year members of the non-profit organization assess community needs to reach as many groups as possible.
