Raffle Quilt Winner Kaye Howard

We are excited to announce that the 2012 Linus Connection Raffle Quilt brought in over $1000 in ticket sales!

Winning ticket-holder Kay Howard was on hand for the drawing, adding excitement to the end of our 2012 fundraiser. We already know she loves her new quilt!
