Quilt Raffle to Benefit M4M Mission

This past weekend we kicked off our quilt raffle to benefit our mission trip and the eye clinic in Mwanza. Ticket will be sold for the next three weeks and the drawing will be on Sunday, May 31st.

Tickets are $5 each or 5 tickets for $20. Tickets are sold at the Tanzania Table in the narthex during the weekend services.

The queen size quilt is beautiful and was donated for the raffle by our team members, Cindy and Don. Here Cindy and a couple other gals from the TZ team are showing off the quilt at the Palm Sunday brunch. The actual size of the quilt is 86" x 102".

Don's 85 year old mother hand stitched the detail on the quilt with loving care. This is one of the 35 quilts she has made over the past 25 years.

The quilt is on display at the TZ Table in the narthex where you can see it up close, check out the detail in the stitching and feel how soft and cozy it is.

More information to come in future posts.
