Charity Benefit successful!
My daughter's culinary school in CT had a benefit on Sat for the "Sunshine Kids" and they asked our group to donate a quilt for their auction( See two posts above this one....) We donated a quilt last year- kid sized- that reaped $600 for their cause! This year, I sent two quilt, a child sized (blue/green with bugs) and an adult one, muted soft browns, pinks, blues... still about a throw/couch size. I was surprised when they picked an adult quilt, but realized after that the auction was attended by adults and the quilts were to be auctioned off for THEM, not the children. My daughter said the Chef was VERY impressed by the quilting done on it...thanks to our local 'angel wings' quilter, Laura McCarrick. The bidding started at $400, and the evening ended with a bidding war between two ladies, one of whom bought it for $875.00!! Whooo hoo! Kiddos to YOU, Laura, and to the ladies of the group!!
