AAQI June Auction Has Ended

Thank you so very much to JenClair from Bayou Quilts (& Dolls) for being the 14th and final bidder for my auction quilt with a winning bid of $165.00!

It was such a joy to have it at auction and to earn money for AAQI. And I am so thrilled and honored that Jen now owns it. This little quilt was truly a delight to create and to donate for this wonderful cause!

The June auction raised a total of $2, 545.00!!! Look at our winning bids and realize just how hard we work and how much we can earn. This is how we fund $60,000 grants. It takes the quilt makers to get it going, but even more so..it takes buyers.

Bless you Jen...you filled me up with 'sparks of heavenly fire' to feel your own goodness and the grace and power move through you as you bid on and made your own beautiful donation to Alzheimer's research funding.
