Remember my quilt, Celebration of Freedom that went to raise money for the Pentagon Memorial Fund? Here’s the blog entry I originally posted when I received noticed that my quilt was chosen.
Here’s a portion of an e-mail I received from the guy I’d been in contact with regarding this donation:
To say that your quilt was the focal point of our showcase would be an understatement --- it was the highlight; it was the main attraction; it was the 'buzz' of the showcase! The end results: $4,595. That's right...your quilt alone brought us $4,595 --- a DCUC record for a single item donation!
They raised a total of $25,000 for the Pentagon Memorial Fund. I’m thrilled that my quilt went to such a worthy cause and they were thrilled with the sum it brought in.
