Saguenay – The 15th Rio Tinto Alcan garage sale in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean raised $55,369. All funds will be donated to the local United Way and Canadian Red Cross.

Thousands of visitors wandered the parking lot at the Complexe Jonquière in Arvida, getting good deals on newfound treasures.

Mishell Potvin, from the Saguenay/Fjord-du-Saguenay branch, is a long-time organizer of the big garage sale, which is a huge success year after year.
