Life Skills Training Center Benefits From Quilt Auction
(Le Mars) -- A quilt auction held at the Plymouth County Fair will benefit the Life Skills Training Center. 78 quilts were sold on Saturday afternoon, including 13 silent auction items raising nearly $20 thousand dollars. Becky Scheitler serves as the public relations coordinator with Life Skills and says the total of $19,886 was nearly $500 more than last year's auction. Scheitler says she sees some familiar faces from year to year.
Scheilter explains how the money will best be utilized and benefit the clients of Life Skills.
The Life Skills official says the annual auction has been around for 17 years.
Lea Reid of Sioux City placed the highest bid of $650 for a modernistic quilt done in warm batiks made by Ginney Freyermuth of Le Mars. Speaking about Life Skills Training Center, the winner of the Cow Chip Bingo was Cody Laughton of Le Mars. Scheitler says he stopped by on Monday morning to pick up his $1000 check.
Scheitler says all 910 squares were sold out before the event...and what was the winning square?
