Opportunity Quilt tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5, and can be purchased from any guild member, at our meetings, at various community events, or at the Quilt Show. .
Money raised from the Opportunity Quilt raffle will assist the guild in philanthropy projects such as:
Quilts for Wounded Veterans – quilts made for injured veterans returning from duty.
Kumfort Quilts – quilts given to "at risk" children and others with special needs. 318 quilts made by guild members were given to children of military families who attended camp at Big Bear this past summer.
Beads of Courage Bags for children with cancer. Each child receiving a treatment or procedure for cancer receives a bead for their courage. The Beads of Courage Bags give them a place to store their “bead strings”.
Funds are also used to encourage the continuance of the art of quilting to members by bringing in speakers and hosting workshops.
Opportunity Quilts to Benefit Breast Cancer Patients
As a tradition with every quilt show our members offer many small opportunity quilts with proceeds to benefit local women in their fight against breast cancer.
In the Activities Room you can view samples of the many philanthropic projects the guild supports. Deposit the raffle ticket you receive at the door and have a chance to win a beautiful Basket filled with hand crafted items and other "goodies". You may also purchase additional tickets to increase your chances of winning! A special exhibit will showcase quilts made by members quilts from our recent Paint Chip Challenge. After drawing three paint chip cards members were challenged to use those colors in a quilt, wall hanging or pillow. Be sure to check out the Silent Auction where you can bid on a variety of items. Just get your bid in early for a chance to win something special.
