Fund-Raiser To Bring Aids Quilt To Spokane

A fund-raiser will be held tonight and Saturday to collect the last of the money needed to bring part of the AIDS quilt to Spokane. Nine hundred and sixty panels, each about the size of a coffin, will be on display at both the Ag Trade Center and the Convention Center April 25-28. The quilt covers 13 acres and weighs 38 tons. Several new panels will be dedicated on April 28.

This week’s fund-raiser will be held at West 4 Main from noon to 7 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

A variety of indoor and outdoor garden items will be on sale, including 55 flats of bedding plants, garden tools and accessories, and seeds. Easter-related items will also be offered.

Several items will be sold at a silent action, including baskets from area wineries, gift certificates to some area stores and a leaf blower. Bids will be taken and the winning bid will be announced Saturday evening. Plus, various items will be raffled off every half-hour. Barbecue, pie and coffee will be on sale.
