Quilt Auction

Quilt Auction 2015

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: 2014

God blessed us last year by sending us approximately 330 people to enjoy lunch and 200 to enjoy the auction. Outdoor worship had good attendence, and God gave us a picture perfect day. We are continually amazed and thankful for His kindness and faithfulness.

We had 167 quilts donated last year to the live auction and 76 items donated to the silent auction. A big thanks to everyone who donated!

A grand total of $52,337 came in from the day’s festivities! That is the most raised in over 5 years. Praise God for the work He is doing in and around this event. The total from the quilts alone was $44,504, which is more than Riverside has ever raised on the auction alone! It was a great atmosphere during the live auction with lots of people bidding on quilts. Additional gifts that went towards the total included, offering, church gifts, and support from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Story, Black Hawk, Two Rivers, and Warren counties. Our second annual Riverside 5K that morning raised an aditional $2835 as well. We look forward to seeing what God has in store for the 2015 Quilt Auction!
