‘April 2017 Activities’

Cheers! for Fighting Cancer!

Kathy Dehn and Colleen Babcock sell raffle tickets at Cheers! On April 7th.

Quilt For a Cause was excited to engage in our first partnership event with the Arizona Oncology Foundation on April 7th. Cheers! was a wine-tasting event held at St. Philip’s Plaza and raised money for the Arizona Oncology Foundation which donates funds to fight cancer around the state of Arizona. Quilt For a Cause donated a quilt, Time Is of the Essence as part of the fundraising effort. Tickets are available online below and by Quilt For a Cause board members and friends. The raffle winner will be drawn on April 25, 2017.

Time Is of the Essence is a vintage quilt top from Paducah, KY, made from men’s shirts and ties, circa 1940s. This unique top was completed with new batting, a binding made from suiting fabric and a pocket watch print fabric as the backing. It was finished with exquisite quilting by QFaC board member, Suzanne Irving. All funds raised from raffle ticket sales for this quilt will be used by the Arizona Oncology Foundation to assist in the fight against breast and gynecologic cancers. We, at Quilt For a Cause, agree with the Foundation that ‘together is always better’. Because of this partnership, a lucky winner will soon own Time Is of the Essence and more funds are being raised to aid the efforts of both organizations to fight cancer. A big thank you to all who participated!

Quilt For a Cause, Inc. will participate with the Arizona Oncology Foundation again on April 25th when the Foundation holds its open house at the Resource Center on the Tucson Medical Center campus. We will be there to talk about developing partnerships and how we raise funds in pursuit of our mission. Breast and gynecologic cancers are diseases that affect the lives of countless women, men and families. If you are interested in partnering with us, we want to talk with you. Please click on the ‘Contact Us’ link above and introduce yourself to us. Help us ‘Sew a Cure for Cancer.’

Diana Montgomery of Green Valley is the proud new owner of “Time is of the Essence”.  Diana’s lucky winning raffle ticket was drawn at the Arizona Oncology Foundation Open House on Tuesday April 24, 2017.
