A Celebration of Hope– A Quilt Auction to benefit breast cancer cure research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute October 18, 2008 at
the Immaculate Conception Parish Center
8791 South Main Street on Rt. 62 in
The Eden Quilt Guild of Eden, New York, is again hosting “A Celebration of Hope,” a quilt auction to benefit breast cancer cure research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Two previous auctions held in 2002 and 2005 raised over $50,000. Although the Eden guild has only fifty members, area quilt shops and other guilds helped to spread the word. The generosity of quiltmakers from all over western New York made this event a success through their donations of quilted items, many of which were made in memory of loved ones who had breast cancer or were treated at the Institute. The 2008 auction will be held on October 18 in Eden, NY at 1:00pm. Quilts may be previewed on Friday, Oct. 17, from 10:00-5:00 and on Saturday, Oct. 18, from 9:00-1:00.
