Lighthouse Lacers tree for raffle

The Lighthouse Lacers finished decorating a tree with handmade lace ornaments, to be donated to the Hospice Alliance, which raffles off the tree. In the past, they have raised up to $1500!

Donations of handmade lace ornaments from non-member lacemakers are gratefully accepted. See the Lighthouse Lacers website for contact information.

Wonderful tree, the only problem is that it means snow is on it's way.

I agree, tattingchic, the ornaments are pretty, and all different because they are made by many people. After the raffle tickets are sold, they draw a lucky winner!

You are right, Diane, it is a wonderful idea, and one of the things I really like about this group.

Clyde, I hear you. It seems like we just got all the snow melted from last winter, and now yet another one is approaching! Not quite yet, though - the tree had to be done early, so that there would be enough time to sell the raffle tickets.

Dantatter, you are right - the winner really is getting a bargain. And, all the money made from the raffle goes to the hospice, to help provide comfort for the terminally ill. Truly a worthy cause.
