Congratulations Ruth Lowen of Glen Iris. Ruth was telephoned last night after her ticket was drawn by Don and she was able to call into our house on her way home from dinner to pick-up the quilt.
By 8.30 pm last night all the tickets had been received and monies collected so I am able to confirm that we raised $1856.00 in total. A great effort for the 30 people who undertook to sell 900+ tickets! Most of this money is already with the Cancer Council Victoria.
Photos of the drawing of the raffle will be published on this blogsite shortly.
The sewing of our next quilt/s will start just before Easter 2009 so in the meantime, thank you to all those people who helped me work on the quilt, organize the raffle, got involved. Hope everyone has a relaxing and fun Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
