2019 Festival of Quilts Day 1

What a great first day at the 15th Annual Festival of Quilts! We welcomed more than 700 guests throughout the day. They not only enjoyed seeing the amazing quilts but also enjoyed a delicious lunch and baked goodies, shopping at the Festival Gift Shop and Quilt Boutique, listening to Sally, our featured speaker, and touring our beautiful campus. And we get to do it again tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Thank you for supporting the 14th Annual Festival of Quilts!

You made our day. Actually, it was two days!

We can’t thank you enough for your support of the 14th Annual Festival of Quilts. You helped us raise more than $71,000 to support the more than 450 youth and families that Cunningham serves each year.

Because of your support of the Festival, our signature fundraiser, hope is building every day within our youth.

Mark your calendars now for next year's Festival:  April 5-6, 2019!
