JRF | Apr 16 2013 |  · · · 

On Sunday, Linda P. from Atlanta was named the winner of this year's quilt raffle! Upon hearing the news, she said: "How wonderful - I am so happy to support a good cause - but what a nice treat to win the quilt!!!"

It will be delivered to her later this week.

Thank you to everyone who entered and supported scholarships for low-income women. You donated more than $2200! That will help provide a scholarship to a woman this year.

You are awesome! Congratulations again to Linda.
