U of M Quilt Raffle

It's that time of year again. Time for the University of Michigan department of Pathology quilt raffle. This year we have 33 quilts donated (only 23 are up on the website as of right now but I'm working on it.) The deadline for submission is Thursday so I know I will be receiving quilts that late. They will have to be photographed and the writeups done and then they can be put on the web so please be patient! If you have not seen our raffle quilts before you are in for a treat. There is certainly something for everyone there. This is the website address

http://www.pathology.med.umich.edu/charity/quilts/quilts.html

Please take a minute to go and look at the quilts. Tickets may be printed from the website but money and tickets need to be mailed to the address provided. Tickets are one for $1.00 or 6 for $5.oo Money goes to help patient families at U of M that the social work dept have determined as being "in need". Last year the quilts raised $11,000 and we were able to help out 11 families with $1000 each. So even if you don't win a quilt, you are a HUGE winner in the eyes of a family that benefits from your donations. We will mail quilts to those that are not here that win so no worries there.

Now what are you waiting for?? oh, yeah, me to finish putting up the rest of the quilts, hee hee hee! It should be done by Friday, ticket sales begin on Monday. No time like the present to start looking now though. Please let me know what you think of the quilts we have up and remember us for next year if you are up for donating to a good cause!
