Quilt Auction

About the Quilt Auction

Our next Quilt Auction is August 1, 2020!

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 joined God in what He is doing here at camp! We are so thankful to those of you who make quilts that abundantly bless Riverside and the campers!

2019 Quilt Auction Recap
We continue to be amazed and thankful in how God provides for campers to attend Riverside each and every year, regardless of their financial situation. One way this is accomplished is through our annual Quilt Auction!
Praise God for his faithfulness. 
  • $38, 750 raised for the whole day (with the 5K)!
  • 146 live-auctioned quilts
  • 66 silent-auctioned craft/quilt items
There were many laughs and memories made once again at the live auction. The day started with our 5K run/walk, followed by a time of musical worship and a message from past camper and staffer, Shelby Hennager. Then folks enjoyed a wonderful BBQ Turkey lunch (thanks to Woodland Farms in Story City) topped off by a slice of pie with ice cream (courtesy of Martin Bros.).  The silent auction saw plenty of traffic and achieved many healthy bids as well!  We want to thank all of the incredibly gifted people who helped quilt the many masterpieces for this great event. We could not do this without you! Thanks to the many volunteers, our summer staff, as well as all of the wonderful people who bid on quilts. We hope to see you all next year!
