          2018 LIGHT THE NIGHT RAFFLE QUILt

     congraTulations to vickie ahlstrom!

    

Fred went to Heaven on April 16th, 2017.  He had a blood cancer called multiple myeloma. No one knows where it originates. No one has a cure. By the grace of God, his cancer was found in 2004 after breaking a hip. Tests confirmed his diagnosis and we began treatment. Fred never achieved remission, so we continued to rely on God’s grace to make new treatments available. He fought it for nearly 13 years.

We've received great support from The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They are a helpful resource to anyone with blood cancer, so we’ve been happy to give back. Team Fred has been participating every year in Light The Night Walks since 2005.

 

MY THANKS FOR SUPPORTING TEAM FRED…A CUSTOM QUILT RAFFLE

I’m happy to once again offer a custom quilt raffle as an extra incentive to donate to the 2018 Light The Night Walk. This 51" x 66" lap quilt was pieced and quilted by myself, Michelle Schmersahl. The quilt pattern is "Floating Stars" by MaryJo Tuttle from Connecting Threads. Aurifil cotton Mako thread was used exclusively in the construction and quilting. Earn one raffle entry for each $20 you donate on this page. A donation of $100 earns five chances in the raffle drawing. 

 

You must donate on this fundraising page to be entered in the drawing, not the Team Fred page, as I don’t have access to that donation information. 

 

The winning name will be drawn at the Light The Night Walk on Saturday November 17, 2018. You need not be present to win. Shipping is free anywhere in the continental USA. Anonymous donations are welcome, but please DO NOT donate ANONYMOUSLY if you want to enter this drawing. Raffle entry deadline is November 16th, 2018.

 

               

 

PLEASE JOIN TEAM FRED AT THE GREATER PHOENIX WALK

I would really like to have you all walk with me. It’s an easy 1-mile walk. Those who raise $100 or more will receive a Light The Night t-shirt and a wristband which entitles the walker to food and refreshments.
