I have lived in this community and worked at TMC for many years. I have been proud that TMC has participated in this event, which benefits the women who are in need of healthcare services. This is the first time I have been able to participate in this worthy event. I thought that a quilt representing women of many diverse backgrounds, wearing the many different colors that represent their origins would be perfect for the cause! Size: 44"x52".
Patricia Votruba designed, made and quilted this quilt in honor of her friend Cindy Surina's survival of breast cancer. Cindy, in turn, donated this quilt to Quilt for a Cause. Flowers selected for this quilt matched the sentiments of the breast cancer (fight) cause. Funds gained from this quilt will support the fight for the cure. Stitched primarily with Superior Thread.....thanks to Superior Thread for providing excellent thread for this quilt.
Three friends have been donating wall hangings for the last two auctions. This year we could not agree on the color of the pears. So, mine are green and theirs are yellow. Thus, "Oh Pears!" and "Pear Still Life." Size: 48"x43".
Since our first auction in 2003 we have raised over $750,000 and donated 99% of proceeds to Tucson-area organizations in support of research, training, and assistance for uninsured and underinsured women.
