The Quilter's Bee Giving Charity Fundraiser will soon come to an end.  Online auctions for the Quilter's Bee Giving Charity Fundraiser will soon be closing, but today I want to showcase more insights on Auction Item #13.

Today I want to showcase one of the auction items that will be closing sometime this week.  This prize bundle is an excellent value, filled with many items of quilty goodness that you may want to keep, or share some with your quilty friends.

Don't forget to check out all of the items currently open for bids in the online auction.  They will each be closed for bidding sometime between now or around December 16th.  The date of closure is a secret, as this is an online charity auction and SewCalGal wants to minimize potential last minute bidding bombers!

SewCalGal is also playing catch up with sending email acknowledgements to those that have donated by way of purchasing raffle tickets.  I'm currently working to log these in my tracking spreadsheet, where virtual raffle ticket numbers are uniquely assigned for every $ dollar donated.  And, as I do I will be sending out individual emails before the big raffle drawing on the 17th.  As the 15th is a Sunday, I'm holding off drawing the raffle winners till the 17th to allow for last minute raffle ticket purchases to arrive via USPS on Monday, December 16th.

For more info on the four non-profit charities showcased in this event click here.  100% of the funds raised thru the Quilter's Bee Charity Fundraiser will be donated to these great causes and you can select which of the four that you wish to donate to when you  win a bid on an auction item.
