Now, THIS is the Way to Put the Fun in Fundraising!
First came Craft Fair/Family Fun Day. The energetic ladies of the Lehigh Acres, FL Chapter, River Hall Country Club "branch," made and sold quilts and other hand-made items, getting the word out into the community about Quilts for Kids.
Leftover items from the Craft Fair were then sold at a member's jewelry party, proceeds benefiting QFK.
Then came National Make-a-Difference Day.
Some members held a Sew-a-thon at River Hall where they made many quilt tops and taught new quilters how to get started; others set up a booth in the community to make people aware of QFK and to offer opportunities for involvement.
At the third fundraiser, in conjunction with the Golf Members Opening Event at River Hall Country Club, the ladies held a Silent Auction featuring art work, golf-themed items, and of course, quilts! Attendees donated very generously thereby enabling Lehigh Acres/River Hall members to keep on sewing for quite a while.
