Beautiful Quilt

SCAD quilts
This wonderful, cheerful SCAD Warrior quilt could be yours! The more tickets you purchase at $10 each, the more opportunities you will have to call this SCAD Warrior Quilt your own!

The 57” x 49” quilt was made by Donna Tavalieri in honor of her friend Karen Glugla, a SCAD survivor. You’ll find the tag with a beautiful tribute to Karen in the bottom corner of the quilt.

Tickets are available online until midnight Sept. 7, they will also be sold during the reunion on 9/9 and at the 5K on 9/10. The winner will be announced Saturday at the end of the 5K. We will ship if you aren’t able to attend.
