Current Fundraisers

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions, all fundraising events have either been postponed or have gone online. Any online raffle ticket sales can be purchased securely through our Square Online Store. The drawing for the Sports Quilt Raffle has been postponed until Nov. 4, 2021. This is due to Covid-19 restrictions and events we would normally sell tickets at being cancelled this past summer and fall. Our newest raffle is the Tree of Fortune and the other ongoing raffle is the Emma's Sports Quilt Raffle. For more information about the raffles, visit our Events page or our Square Online Store.
