Carson Valley Arts Council raffles quilt

Special to The R-CNancy Brisack with the quilt, 'Black and White and Red All Over.' The Carson Valley Arts Council is selling raffle tickets for $5 each, five tickets for $20, or 30 for $100.

Nancy Brisack of Gardnerville has donated an original quilt for the Carson Valley Arts Council’s capital campaign.

The quilt is 87 inches by 70 inches and was created by Brisack with the theme of “Black and White and Red All Over.”

The Carson Valley Arts Council will be selling raffle tickets for $5 each, five tickets for $20, or 30 for $100.

A Carson Valley Arts Council member and supporter has offered to match all quilt raffle ticket sales up to $1,000, thereby increasing the value of each ticket sold. If others wish to make a matching pledge, contact the CVAC office at 782-8297.

The quilt will be on display at the CVAC office in the Copeland Cultural Arts building located at 1572 Highway 395 in Minden, and at remaining concerts at the CVIC this season.

The winning ticket will be drawn at the intermission of the last concert of the season on May 10. You do not need to be present to win.

“The quilt raffle is just one of the ways that local artists are showing their support of CVAC,” said Executive Director Steve Farnsley. “The organization is also continuing its big check campaign. Carson Valley residents are encouraged to make donations of as little as $25, have their picture taken with the big check, and receive an original small pin or pendant individually crafted by local artist Pam Brekas.”

The Carson Valley Arts Council is in a capital campaign to raise funds to retire the debt on the Copeland Lumber Warehouse.

The Carson Valley Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; donations may be tax deductible as allowed by law. Federal Tax ID No. 84-1653859.
