Quilt Auction

Quilt Auction 2014

The Quilt Auction is Riverside’s largest annual fund raiser and the donations are great gifts to the general ministry of Riverside! We thank the Lord and all of you who give so generously!

We are very thankful to be able to welcome ALL campers to Riverside regardless of their financial situations. The result is a great reminder of how gracious our God is and how faithful are His followers!

Please come and support the ministry of Riverside by purchasing a quilt! You take home a beautifully handmade quilt AND you will have given to God’s work! We are so thankful to those of you who make quilts that abundantly bless Riverside and the campers!

Looking back on last year: 2013

God blessed us last year by sending us approximately 250 people to enjoy lunch and the auction. Outdoor worship had a record attendence, and God gave us a picture perfect day. We are continually amazed and thankful for His kindness and faithfulness.

We had 250 quilts donated last year to the live auction and 87 items donated to the silent auction. A big thanks to everyone who donated!

The total from the quilts alone was $33,503 and the total for the day was $46,561. additional gifts included, offering, church gifts, support from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Story, Black Hawk, Two Rivers, and Warren counties. Our first ever Riverside 5K that morning raised an aditional $3,700 as well.
