Northampton Area High School DECA Club is hosting its fourth annual mattress sale fundraiser. The cafeteria of the high school, 1619 Laubach Ave., will be transformed into a 20-plus bed showroom filled with all sizes and styles.

If you’re in the market for a new bed or bedding accessories and want to support local students, be sure to stop by the high school 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Nov. 4 to find adjustable bed frames, luxury pillows, box springs and a vast array of mattresses, including memory foam, along with friendly floor assistants to help you with all your questions. Take your time trying out the mattresses.

You’ll find better-than-retail prices, and your purchase will help the Konkrete Kids! Name brands, such as Simmons Beautyrest, Malouf, Symbol and Tranquility, are available for up to 50 percent off retail prices.

Watch for area yard signs and the few lucky high school kids who get to wear the “mattress suit” while promoting the sale to passers-by.

For more information, text 484-276-4900 or contact Dave Cox at dcox@customfundraisingsolutions.com or 215-913-8762.
