FMF and LB&OM Raffle!

Tragedy struck a close friend and her family this year. Her husband was diagnosed with brain cancer, and is fighting for his life. He has been the sole provider for their family of 5, and so needless to say, things are tight now. Cindy has been doing a great job holding it down and keeping things together, but as a friend I wanted to help her out with something. So yesterday, I'm racking my brain..thinking about what I can do to help her raise a lil money..and it hit me. I can raffle off some of my most treasured and loved fabric...sigh. ((Yes, I def. love this girl.))


I was thinking of listing it on ebay, but then I had the thought of not only doing something to help my friend, but giving the chance to a FMF or HR lover to win these lovelies without paying an arm & a leg. So...I'm holding 2 raffles, one for a FQ of the Flea Market Fancy fabrics shown and one for the Lightning Bugs fabrics shown. Tickets are $5. Let me know what raffle ticket you're buying, FMF or LB or BOTH. You can send paypal to br_boxing@yahoo.com I'll let this run through Monday midnight CT. and I'll post the winners on Tuesday. Good Luck!!!
