At the Ladies Night Gala held on Saturday, Mar. 7, a raffle for a queen size quilt was launched.
The quilt has been made by the Barriere Community Quilters group and has been donated to the Anti Violence Advocates Society to be used as a fundraiser.
The value of the quilt is $650, with ticket sales now underway and being offered until the draw date of July 7. Tickets are $2 each and can be purchased by calling Barb Gordon at 250-672-2111, or watch for tickets at various venues in Barriere from now until the draw date.
The Barriere Quilters has already made and donated over 20 quilts for children; the quilts are distributed with emergency kits to women and children who are leaving abuse.
The Anti Violence Society thanks the Barriere Quilters for their tremendous support of this program.
