Yacht club stitches together another fundraiser quilt

Some locally-curated creativity is once again aimed at helping family members in some of the most trying times.

Sequim Bay Yacht Club members are once again raffling off a quilt as a fundraiser for Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County (VHOCC).

Each dollar raised via raffle tickets—$5 each or six for $25 — goes directly to VHOCC for respite care.

The 43-inch-by-43-inch quilt was created by yacht club members from fabric donated by area businesses, and professionally quilted by club member Dory Miller, owner of Crazy Horse Quilting.

As with the 2020 quilt raffle, ticket sales this year are touch-free. Send your check (make payable to “VHOCC”) to: Judy Shanks SBYC, PO Box 1261 Sequim WA 98382.

Include a postal or e-mail address to receive a photo of one’s tickets, for a record of the purchase and ticket numbers.

The raffle drawing is traditionally done in December.

For more information, email Shanks at waquilt@aol.com.

Since 1978, Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County has served the terminally ill and their families with physical, emotional and spiritual support — at no charge to any individual, government agency or insurance company. In addition to offering round-the-clock nursing care, hospice caregivers provide respite for families.

Sequim Bay Yacht Club is VHOCC’s largest continuing donor and in three decades, has contributed more than $400,000 for respite care.

Organized in 1976, Sequim Bay Yacht Club offers cruising, sailing, rowing and social programs open to the public. Visit sequimbayyacht.club for membership information and the club’s current schedule.
