Quilt raffle to benefit 2020 Komen Vermont virtual ride

Honorary Ride for the Cure Chair, Lois Whidden (R) and Ride volunteer, Alice Rogers (L) show off this year’s Ride Quilt, donated by Ann M. Ashcroft, of Bellows Falls. The quilt is being raffled off for the benefit of the 2020 Komen Vermont Virtual Ride for the Cure. Drawing on Monday, Oct. 12.

MANCHESTER—A horse-themed 60-inch square quilt, handmade by Ann M. Ashcroft of Bellows Falls, is being raffled off in support of the 2020 Komen Vermont Virtual Ride for the Cure® and the winner will be drawn, “live” online, on Monday, Oct. 12.

Ashcroft has donated her quilt-making skills to the Ride for the Cure in Vermont. Over the past 11 years, Ashcroft has now made nine quilts for the Ride, each one different, but with some kind of horse theme. This component of the Susan G. Komen horseback ride fall fundraiser has become a constituent, and community, favorite.

2020 Komen Vermont Virtual Ride for the Cure® Honorary chair Lois Whidden said, “Ann has made many quilts for family, friends and other organizations. She has an eye for putting materials together that look fantastic. I am very grateful for her support of the Vermont Ride through her making and donation of her beautiful quilts.”

VT Ride Quilt Entry is open to Ride registrants, and the community-at-large. VT Ride Quilt raffle tickets are: $5 for one and $25 for 6, and $45 for 12.
