crochet for Massey

The Massey Cancer Center in Richmond, Virginia held a fund-raiser last June. It was organized by the Young Professionals in the Richmond area. My son is on the board of directors for this volunteer organization. As part of the fundraiser, they gathered all kinds of donations and put the donations into baskets and had a raffle. I made an afghan using the
"homespun" yarn and that went into the 'bed and breakfast' basket and I made 2 scarves using "fun fur" which were part of the lady's 'spa' basket. Needless to say, the event was very successful and when they need something to be crocheted or knitted...they call.
I have also donated afghans to be raffled for the Relay for Life Cancer fundraiser in Petersburg, Virginia.
What a wonderful feeling! Thank you, Lion Brand!
