Tossing? Turning? Maybe it’s time to upgrade that lumpy old mattress. The Mt. Lebanon Blue Devil Marching Band will host a Mattress Fundraiser Sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, April 26, at Mt. Lebanon United Lutheran Church on Washington Road (at the Cochran Road intersection). You’ll find all sizes and brand names—from Restonic to Simmons—at prices that will save you 30 to 60 percent off retail. Mattresses come with factory warranties and delivery and layaway options are available. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. All proceeds benefit the band.
