Quilt raffle to benefit Shriners' hospital fund

Posted by Dianna Weston, Special to The Oregonian Tigard news

Mallard Lakes resident Cynthia Conner wants her neighbors to know about a raffle the Shriners are holding to support the Al Kader Hospital Transportation Fund.

The dedicated fund is managed by Al Kader Shriners in support of patient travel to and from the Portland Shriners Hospital.

The raffle is for a "beautiful handmade quilt made by Shelley Timm," Conner says, and is displayed in the foyer at the Shrine Center. Tickets are six for $5 and can be purchased by calling 503-682-4420 for credit card sales or by visiting the Shrine Center, 25100 S.W. Parkway Ave., Wilsonville.

"Visitors to the center can see the quilt," Conner says. "It's queen-sized, flannel-lined and is in blues and yellows with suns, moons and stars!"

The drawing was held Dec.20 at the center.
