At the February meeting, we will commence to sell books of Raffle tickets to Guild members to purchase for advance sales to your family and friends. The prize is a Queen size Quilt, which will be on display.
In 2016, advance sales of Raffle tickets, by all the Guild members were excellent and it would be great to have the same experience for our 2018 Quilt Show!
Tickets will be sold in books of 15 tickets, at a cost of $25.00. The ticket price is 3 tickets for $5.00. So that means you only have to sell your book of 15 tickets to 5 individuals (3 tickets for $5.00), and your book is complete!
As done in previous years, the member purchases the book of tickets up front for $25.00, sells the tickets (now this money is yours) and returns the stubs for the Quilt draw. We will keep track of the member’s names and the ticket books.
It is necessary to return your completed books of stubs to the Raffle Quilt Committee at our monthly meetings. We will need all stubs to be returned for the Quilt draw before the LGQG Quilt Show. This will ensure all tickets are entered in the Quilt draw on Saturday, June 9th.
During March, April, May and June, the Raffle Quilt Committee is planning visits to various Quilting Guilds and also the Lion’s Gate Hospital to promote our Quilt Show, and sell raffle tickets. We need volunteers to assist. Please sign up at the Raffle Quilt table at our monthly meetings. Thank you!
It is important to remember that all proceeds from the sale of the Raffle tickets go directly to our Community Quilts program.
As always, thank you for your support.
