Our Quilt Auction day began early in the morning this year with our 5K Walk/Run. What a great day!
The Quilt Auction is our biggest 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 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!
God blessed us by sending more people this year (270) to enjoy lunch and the auction. Outdoor Worship took place with a record number of people as well. God gave us a picture perfect day. We are continually amazed and thankful for His kindness and faithfulness.
We had 163 beautiful quilts on the Live Auction and 87 great items for the Silent Auction. What amazing gifts of love they are! THANK YOU!
The total from quilts alone was $33,503 and the total for the day was $46,561! The total for the day includes offering, additional gifts, church gifts in lieu of donating quilts, and gifts from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans County Chapters Black Hawk, Hamilton, Story, Two Rivers, Warren. The day’s total also includes the income from the 5K which was $3,700.
Many of you quilt, many donate and many buy—what a GREAT combination!
Quilt Auction 2014 is officially set for August 2.
