Quilt Auction

Quilt Auction 2016

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!

God continues to bless the ministry of Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp as we reach out to thousands of youth and adults each year. Thank you to all who made the beautiful donated quilts and also thank you to those who bought quilts - a winning combination for Riverside!

August 1 was a gorgeous summer day and many people came to Riverside to enjoy the activities! The day was kicked off with a 5K on the beautiful grounds of Riverside. Perfect weather made for some happy runners and walkers. 63 runners came out to support the ministry. The overall winner was Jim Robidoux, while Celia Bravard was 2nd overall and thus captured the title for the women's division. Over 200 people attended the Outdoor Worship, the turkey BBQ lunch, and the Auction! We had 14 more quilts on the Live Auction and 14 fewer items on the Silent Auction. The day's total was $43,745.25. This was $8582.03 less than last year. We continue to be so thankful God has chosen to bless Riverside financially through the Auction.
