After another record-setting year of sales, the Westerville Senior Center is shooting for its biggest garage sale yet.

The sale is in its seventh year, and organizer Lloyd Kuschner said the 2017 event raised more than $7,000 -- $1,000 more than even he was hoping.

"Last year we broke all our records," he said with a laugh.

The annual garage sale draws dozens of volunteers, and helps the senior center raise money for sponsorships, supplies for the center and supports other programming.

Kuschner said his favorite use of the money raised from the garage sale is sponsoring Honor Flight trips, which take military veterans to Washington, D.C., to see monuments and museums.

"It's such a wonderful, wonderful charity," he said. "They really deserve it, and we're so happy to be sponsors."

The garage sale does not accept clothing among items for donation, and only takes cash as payment. Kuschner said the most in-demand items are usually furniture and children's items such as cribs and toys.

"It seems like every year we get a lot of collectibles and antiques," he said.

In a year of unpredictable weather, Kuschner said the event will be under cover so the sale is less reliant on sunshine.

The sale takes place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, April 26, as well as April 27 at the senior center, 310 W. Main St.
