Tahoe Quilters donation helps ‘Best Friends’

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. The quilt proved so popular many members of the group have fashioned versions for their own gift-giving or personal use. Tahoe Quilters meets Wednesday mornings at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

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, or by mail at P.O. Box PET, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96158. They also may be purchased at the Humane Society’s mobile adoption events at the “Y” and at Sierra Tahoe Fabrics, corner of Lake Tahoe Boulevard and Tallac Avenue, behind Rojo’s and Port of Subs.

The quilt is featured on the Web site at http://www.laketahoehumaneandspca.org. It will be on display at Sierra Tahoe Fabrics until the Tahoe Quilt Show Aug. 5, 6, and 7 in Valhalla at the Tallac Historic Site. The raffle will take place at the end of the 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.
