Playing for Poverty committee members Heather Sturges and Brett Counterman display the quilt donated by Four Seasons Quilters.

In support of the annual Playing for Poverty event in the city of Fulton, local quilting group Four Seasons Quilters, has donated a beautifully handcrafted quilt to be raffled at the event.

Four Seasons is a caring, enthusiastic, service-oriented group of quilters who meet and help each other develop their skills. According to club president Sue Bartlett, the fabric is a batik which refers to the method used to dye it using wax to delineate areas of color while dyeing. “The quilt was pieced and gifted by club member Jennifer Lyons, to be quilted and donated for the good of the community”, says Bartlett.

The Playing for Poverty event, now in its 4th year, is a free community concert event that raises money for the food bank of CNY through donations and raffles, in addition to collecting non-perishable food donations the day of the event that will be dispersed to Oswego County food pantries.

Tickets will be available from now through the day of the concert with the drawing being held at the event. For ticket or concert info, contact Heather Sturges at (315)342-7532 or check out Playing for Poverty on Facebook.
