On August 8, 2009 we held a raffle at the Salem Days Quilt Show in Salem, UT. Proceeds from the raffle went toward our Festival of Trees fund. We were able to raise a lot of money thanks to the generosity of the many people who donated. We raffled off 5 quilts and a silk flower arrangement. One of the quilts was designed, pieced, and quilted in memory of Colton.
With the money we raised from the raffle we were able to purchase most of the items needed for our Festival of Trees display. Our tree will be on display at the Festival of Trees in Sandy, UT on December 1st, and is called "Our Guitar Hero". It is Guitar Hero/Rock Band themed, as Colton was a drummer in a local band, the Boneyard Daddies, and was the best Guitar Hero/Rock Band player we knew. The Festival is open to the public starting on the 2nd, and runs until the 5th at the South Towne Expo Center.
To obtain a bid number for the auction on December 1st, contact the Festival. Their number is available under the FAQ on their website.
