Quilt Auction Raises Funds for CASA
Friends of Alaska CASA’s 18th
Annual Silent Quilt Auction was held on, November 29, 2014 at the University
Center Mall in Anchorage. There were 197
stunningly gorgeous quilts donated by 92 generous quilters
from Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Washington, and even New Zealand this
year. Over $26,000 was raised at the auction via the quilts, the
raffle quilt ticket sales, and cash donations.
For the 18th year, Sally’s
Kitchen, an amazingly harmonious-sounding group of women, and (for the third year) Alaska Folk Arts Family & Friends
entertained the auction crowd with some fantastic music and heavenly
FAC’s Vice President and Secretary, as well as a dedicated volunteer CASA, held
the winning raffle ticket for the Warm Irish Chain Raffle Quilt. This year’s raffle quilt was magnificently
made and donated by Becky Rudisill
and exquisitely machine quilted and donated by Melanie Hancock.
