Two ladies on the North Shore won our 2016 Raffle Quilts.
Our first winner is Maebritte Jeffels, who is 95 years young, living at Evergreen House and is still as bright as a new penny. She was very happy with her new quilt and informed us, she has never won anything like this before. Maebritte bought her ticket, when we were selling tickets at Lions Gate Hospital and wanted to support our Community Quilts program. She sees the quilts donated by our Guild and the joy they bring to the residents at Evergreen House.
The second winner is Katherine Bennett, who lives in Lynn Valley. Katherine bought her ticket from Katherine Gillis of our Guild and had not viewed the quilts prior to winning. She was very pleased when Suzanne delivered the white modern quilt to her home, and loved the back as much as the front.
Both, very pleased ladies, are pictured with their winning quilts!
Raffle tickets sales raised over $3,000.00 (net) for the Community Quilts programs. A BIG thank you to all the Guild members who helped to sell raffle tickets to their friends and family. Guild member tickets sales represented 54% of total tickets sold.
The Raffle Quilt Committee, of Betty Clarke, Suzanne Patchell, Norine McCaffrey and myself, are now retiring. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this Committee for the past four years and our best wishes go out to the next group.
