The Cedar Key Woman's Club fund raiser for the Fisher House of Gainesville came to a finale on Sunday during the Old Florida Celebration of the Arts.
A beautiful queen-size quilt was donated last fall by Judy Byrne of Hondo, Texas. Byrne is the sister of Cedar Key residents Charles and Janet Ramsey.
The Cedar Key Woman's Club sold 500 tickets and collected over $2,000 in donations for the quilt raffle — and the winner was Kris Swanson of Bigfork, Minnesota.
Swanson was delighted with her prize and she and her husband are part-time residents of Cedar Key since 1994.
CKWC would like to thank Capital City Bank, Drummond Bank and the Salty Needle Quilt Shop for helping the club with this fund raiser.
Fisher House fund raising will become a focus for the CKWC as well as the Support Our Troops program which began in 2002.
Keep your eyes open for the next CKWC fund raising effort for these well-deserved programs helping our veterans and troops.
