BUCKHANNON — On October 13, 2022, Quilters at Heart Quilt Guild of Buckhannon held the annual drawing for their 2022 Charity Raffle Quilt. Once a year the quilters make a quilt to raffle to raise money for a local charity. The Guild raised $1,200 for the Ruth House and Esther in Buckhannon. Director of Ruth House and Esther, Doug Spears attended the meeting to draw for the quilt and receive the check.
This year’s winner was Rebekah Wilkerson, daughter of Kristi and Curtis Wilkerson. Rebekah is a sophomore at Buckhannon-Upshur High School and stated that her grandmother purchased her the winning ticket. A new quilt made by guild members is already in the works for 2023.
