This year’s summer camp for children just ended. Each week was life-changing as campers and counselors grew their faith in the amazing outdoors at Camp Tomah Shinga!
We want to encourage you to attend the 2019 Quilt Auction on September 14 at the camp. There are changes that hopefully will make it easier for you to attend. The auction will begin at 1:00 p.m. which will allow guests more time to travel to the auction and be able to return home in good time. The quilts will be hanging by 11:00 a.m. so guests can check them out. At 12:00pm, we will have the delicious lunch we enjoy each year followed by the auction.
One difference this year is the addition of an “Adopt-a-Quilt” sponsorship. There will be the live auction as usual, featuring beautiful quilts and art, as well as the lively auctioneers who make the event so fun. However, some of the donations of smaller quilts will be designated as “Adopt-a-Quilt” and will be set apart on a display at the quilt auction and tagged with the quilter’s name. The quilts will be priced at $25, $50 or $100. Sponsors have the option to adopt a quilt ahead of time or ask for a sponsorship on auction day. All proceeds from Adopt-a-Quilt will go to Camp Tomah Shinga and the adopted quilts will be sent to loving homes.
Some of the quilts for the live auction can also be viewed on the CTS Facebook page or website. If you are unable to attend the live auction we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. We, of course, hope you will come to Camp Tomah Shinga again this year to buy a quilt or two.
Again, we are so blessed because of your interest in Camp Tomah Shinga and invite you to continue to support this important ministry!
