26TH ANNUAL QUILT AUCTION
November 25-26, 2022
Our dedicated and superb quilt donors and quilt buyers came together for another successful quilt auction for FACC. There was a great deal of competition for the donated 64quilts, many of them receiving well over 25 bids each. Quilt donors from near and far –California, Colorado, Idaho, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington – as well as from our Alaska communities of Anchor Point, Anchorage, Dutch Harbor/Unalaska, Juneau, Kenai, Palmer, Soldotna, Willow and Wasilla – all participated by donating an exquisite quilt for our annual event.
We are delighted to announce that the 26th Annual Quilt Auction raised a total of$17,525, with the quilts, raffle tickets, and cash donations. It is heartwarming to see so many loyal supporters acknowledge FACC’s volunteer work in providing services and assistance to Alaska’s youth in State and Tribal care.
Sharon Hillstrom volunteered to make FACC’s raffle quilt, “Alaska Summer Batiks,” and Melanie Brown volunteered to provide the machine quilting. Both are extremely talented and generous quilters. Speaking of the raffle quilt, Judy Smith held the winning ticket to this year’s raffle quilt “Alaskan Summer Batiks.” Judy is a long-time supporter, having donated 29quilts since 1999. Judy has also been an incredible helper before, during and after the majority of FACC’s 26 quilt auctions. Congratulations, Judy!
Our tremendous thanks and gratitude to all of FACC’s supporters for another successful event. Our faithful quilt donors are:
