Raffle Quilt Raised $8,080 for A Place Called Home

Jean Kyle presented Lorrie Polito, representing A Place Called Home a cheque from $8,080.  Kudos to Jean's Raffle Ticket Committee and to all of our members who sold tickets.  Also to Pam Campbell and Donna MacDonald for choosing an amazing quilt pattern/materials and to all the ladies who spent countless hours piecing, appliqueing, and hand quilting.  What a great achievement!
