OSWEGO, NY â€“ Samantha McKie of Fulton put her talents to good use as she crafted a quilt for the Oswego Community Christian School.
The handmade quilt will be one of the many items that will be available at the schoolâ€™s third annual auction to be held May 15 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Oswego Armory, West First Street.
The action, which serves as a fundraiser for the school, will feature a silent auction from 1 to 3 p.m. and a live auction from 3 to 5 p.m.
Committee members, who have been busy soliciting and gathering items for the auctions, were pleased to accept the donation from McKie.
â€œThis beautiful handmade quilt is a wonderful addition to the many great items that will be available during both our silent auction and our live auction,â€ said committee member Patty Brancato.
The quilt will be available through special drawing.
Tickets for the drawing for the quilt will be available for $5 per ticket or three for $10 and can be purchased at the event.
The auction will also include the Oswego Community Christian Schoolâ€™s annual prize drawing.
