REGION – A horse-themed 60-by-60-inch quilt, handmade by Ann M. Ashcroft of Bellows Falls, Vt., is being raffled off in support of the 2021 Komen Vermont Ride for the Cure and the winner will be drawn Monday, Oct. 11, 2021.
Ashcroft has donated her quilt-making skills to the Ride for the Cure in Vermont. This is the 10th quilt Ann has made for the ride, each one different, but always a horse theme. This component of the Susan G. Komen horseback ride fall fundraiser has become a constituent, and community, favorite.
2021 Komen Vermont Virtual Ride for the Cure Honorary Chair Lois Whidden said, “Ann makes quilts for family, friends, and other organizations. I am very grateful that she chooses to continue her support of the Vermont Ride for the Cure through the making and donation of her wonderful quilts.”
Vermont Ride Quilt Entry is open to all ride registrants and the community-at-large.
