Quilt raffle benefits animals

Each year the Tahoe Quilters donates a handmade quilt to a local charity. This year the quilt, “Best Friends,” was donated for a raffle by the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A. The full-size quilt features cats and dogs of many colors on a paw print background. Bill Burroughs hand guided the machine stitching of the quilt after the Tahoe Quilters group finished it.

Tickets are $1 each or $5 for six. Proceeds will benefit the 100 percent donation-supported, private animal rescue shelter and cruelty prevention programs. Tickets are available at the shelter, 1063 Magua Street in Meyers and at Sierra Tahoe Fabrics, corner of Lake Tahoe Boulevard and Tallac Avenue, behind Rojo’s and Port of Subs.

The winning tickets will be drawn Aug. 7 at the end of the Valhalla Quilt Show. Entrants need not be present to win.

The Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A. has been serving the pets and people of California and Nevada since 1967. Information is available at (530) 577-4521.
