Quilt show helps out the SPCA

A handmade quilt is a cozy way to warm up on a cool evening.

But thanks to an annual fundraiser, they have also provided some warmth to homeless animals at the Vernon and District SPCA.

Hundreds of quilt enthusiasts from throughout the Okanagan attended the recent exhibit Quilts in the Coldstream V at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall, a fundraiser in memory of Sharon Sasaki, with proceeds to the SPCA.

“We had a great day and were very happy with the money raised and the number of people who attended,” said Buffie Moir, with Coldstream Quilters, which hosted the event in conjunction with the Coldstream Women’s Institute. “We were very pleased to donate a total of $2,869 to the SPCA.”
