It’s Quilt Raffle time again! Every year, our group of expert quilters volunteer their time to create beautiful quilts for us to raffle. This year, with COVID-19 shutting the building, the Going to Pieces Gang was unable to finish the joint quilt. However, we’re delighted to say that one of the members came to the rescue with a beautiful quilt that he had made just for fun, which you can see here!
In all, there will be three quilts raffled. Tickets are $5 for one or $10 for three ($30 for all 10 tickets). For every ticket you buy, there are three chances to win! The winning tickets will be drawn on Sunday, August 30 from 3-5pm at the Ypsilanti Senior Center, and will be shown live on our Facebook page on https://www.facebook.com/ypsiseniorcenter. If the weather cooperates, we will hold the raffle on the patio of the senior center, so you can come and social distance in the park. We hope to have a few speakers from 3-4, and we will be selling last-minute tickets at that time. We will then pick the names at 4pm.
The funds we raise during the Quilt Raffle help support the center in the following ways:
- Replace funds lost due to COVID-19 & social distancing regulations
- Provide low cost meals to our community seniors
- Offer affordable classes in arts, crafts, exercise and more
- Providing a large meeting place for all types of community groups
- Support all the new programs we are offering
- And much, much more!
To obtain tickets, contact [email protected], and we will mail you a set of tickets! If you’re just interested in supporting the Senior Center with a donation, please visit our Donate and Support page where you can give a gift via PayPal. Thank you for your support!
