Hello Friends of Alaska CASA (FAC) Community! Due to COVID-19, we are sad to announce that we will not be holding our annual in-person quilt auction. However, we are grateful to be able to present to you a virtual, online quilt auction as well as a raffle quilt! We will miss your faces dearly but hope you will still be able to participate in our very important annual fundraiser for children in state and tribal custody and foster care.
With this new virtual, online format, we are limiting the auction to 60 quilts from 60 individual quilters who have donated to FAC for 10 or more years. We treasure and appreciate all our quilter donors and hope to engage you all again in 2021.
Photos of the quilts will be uploaded by November 11, 2020, on the quilt auction site, www.qtego.net/qlink/fac. Bidding on the quilts will begin on Friday, November 27, at 9:00 a.m., and continue until Saturday, November 28, at 3:00 p.m. You will have 30 hours to preview and bid on the 60 quilts! A postage fee of $15 will be added to the price for quilts that need to be mailed from Anchorage to the successful bidder.
While you are waiting for the quilt auction to begin, you can buy a chance to win this beautiful quilt “Northern Lights of Alaska”. This quilt is queen sized (86×96) and was expertly made by Sharon Hillstrom and superbly machine quilted by Melanie Brown.
Tickets by books of 5 for $20 are highly encouraged (although individual tickets for $5 each are also available). A photocopy of the ticket stubs will be emailed to purchasers each Sunday evening.
Please note, in accordance with Alaska gaming law, we must limit raffle tickets to Alaska residents. Raffle tickets can be purchased from now until 12:00 noon on Saturday, November 28, 2020, or until such time as Alaska Gaming temporary guidance which allows online sales should expire. The winning ticket will be drawn on Saturday, November 28, at 3:00 p.m. live on Facebook! The winning ticket holder will be notified by telephone.
Stay tuned for upcoming posts for our virtual auction which will take place November 27 and 28!
