Joe came in one day last year after his Kiwanis meeting and was talking about needing to raise money for the Administrative fund. The Administrative fund is the fund they use for internal expenses like postage, gifts for speakers, travel expenses, etc. The Service fund is the money they use for scholarships, etc.
So in short order, I could see where this was going. So it came around to a discussion of me making a quilt for them to raffle. I asked him about timeframe and he said early 2013 (but the raffle had to be approved by the Board).
Of course, the Board said yes but they wondered if I could have it done in time for the Smyrna Jonquil Festival.
Yikes, six weeks!
So I went to my "go to" quilt pattern and this is the result...
Joe worked so hard to sell tickets. The club capped the ticket sales at 400 and Joe sold over 100 by himself. The raffle raised a little over $1,600. Woo Hoo!
The quilt was won by our friend Rosemary who works at our local Ace Hardware store. When we were in the store last week, she told me is was so warm and comfy. I love it when someone uses an appreciates my work.
