Quilt raffle to help end polio
The Rotary Club of San Antonio has launched a local fundraiser to help end polio, in conjunction with Rotary International’s fourth annual World Polio Day event.
Two handmade quilts, sewn and donated by a local polio survivor, will be raffled off.
The drawings for the quilts will be on Dec. 13. Two entrants will be selected to win either a Tampa Bay Buccaneers logo quilt or a kaleidoscope quilt.
The tickets are $5 each, or $20 for five tickets.
All proceeds will go to PolioPlus at the Rotary Foundation.
