Make plans now
to attend the LQG FUNdraiser on Saturday afternoon, October 23, 2021, at the International Quilt Museum (33rd & Holdrege Streets) and invite a quilting or non-quilting friend or friends to attend with you! Tickets are $5 and will go on sale at the October 11 guild meeting!
Registration will begin at 1:00. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on and win a variety of donated items and themed baskets for the Silent and Super Silent Auctions. Auction tables will close at intervals beginning at 2:00 PM. In between viewing and bidding on auction items, attendees can tour the museum’s galleries, enjoy a dessert, and vote on their favorite set of potholders! Did we mention there will be lots of door prizes?Why a fundraiser?
Due to the pandemic, we were not able to hold our biennial quilt show and live auction in 2020 as well as be able to have our in-person guild meetings. The quilt show and live auction as well as the mini-raffles we have at our guild meetings are our sources of revenue in addition to our annual membership dues. The LQG board felt a silent auction fundraiser would help to try and recoup some of the lost revenue due to the pandemic.Silent Auction Items needed!
Members are being asked to donate an item(s) for the silent auction. What to donate? Donated items should be new and they do not have to be quilt related. Consider items that your friends (non-quilters) would be interested in bidding on. Members can adopt a themed basket or just donate an item(s) from the suggested list of ideas
. If you don’t like to shop, cash donations are being accepted in lieu of an auction item and the committee will shop for you.
All donated items need a completed Silent Auction Donation Form attached to each donated item (one per item). Here is the link for the form.
Auction Items can be delivered to the Silent Auction table at the September and October guild meetings or if you’re not able to bring them to a meeting, please contact Sherry Taylor to make other arrangements to drop off or have your item(s) picked up. All auction items will be posted on the guild’s website prior to the event.
