BREWER, Maine (WABI) A big yard sale in Brewer helped raise money for a good cause.

The 3rd Annual Geghan's Charity Yard Sale kicked off around noon on Saturday.

Some of the items for sale featured original memorabilia from Geghan's as well as some discounted merchandise.

Proceeds helped raise money for Team Geghan in Eastern Maine Medical Center's Champion the Cure Challenge.

"Everybody has been affected by cancer in some way, whether them personally, a neighbor, co-worker, friend, family member," said Lisa Sturgeon of Geghan's. "So in order for us to give back it's just an easy way for us to do that."

Organizers say they raised over $350 from today's sale.
