Hello Ward Fans!
Most of you know how Ward feels about conservation. He is so passionate about the cause of conservation that in 1996 he created his own organization, the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation.
Once a year the Fan Club conducts a fundraiser for the Foundation. This year Mindy Peterson, a professional quilter, contacted us with the idea of making a quilt to be raffled, with 100% of the proceeds going to the WBWF.
The "Signature Quilt" will be a full bed-size quilt machine-pieced and hand-quilted. It will be composed of alternating Sawtooth Star blocks and blocks signed by Winston Cup drivers. The color scheme consists of rich country homespuns and plaids. The reverse side fabric is an outdoor theme with canoes, tents, fishing gear and cabins. I wish I had a picture to share with you but it won't be completed until the end of September.
We are going to hold the raffle for the quilt during the Ward Burton Fan Club Meet and Greet at the Caterpillar Dealership in Charlotte on October 5th. The winner does not need to be present to win.
If you are interested in purchasing tickets for a chance to win this authentic piece of work and help a great cause at the same time, contact Mona Singleton to purchase tickets. Tickets will be $5.00 each.
There are three ways you can purchase a ticket. Please note that you won't receive the actual ticket. Once you place your order, your name will be put in the "raffle box." That box will be present at the Meet and Greet. Once the winner's name is drawn, a check for the amount collected (plus any monies collected that evening) will be presented to Ward. You can call, email or write your name, address and phone number along with a check (made payable to Club WB), credit card or money order to: <pre> Quilt Raffle Mona Singleton 3475 Myer Lee Dr. Winston Salem, NC 27101
This is for a non-profit organization (tax ID# 541808745).
Thank you for your continued support!
