LSUA Raffles Quilt for United Way

Released: 10/24/2008

LSU at Alexandria is selling raffle tickets for a homemade quilt to support the university’s United Way of Central Louisiana campaign. The red and white cotton quilt, which will fit a full- or queen-size bed, is on display in Bolton Library on campus. Raffle tickets, which are available to the public, are $1 each or six for $5. Tickets will be sold through the Office of Auxiliary Services until noon on Oct. 29.

The quilt was crafted by the LSUA Quilters, a group of faculty and staff members that creates quilts for charity projects. The LSUA Quilters recently gave 13 quilts to the university’s Children’s Center, and another one will be donated soon to the Alexandria Metro Rotary Club to support a civic project.
