Brandywine Residents Bid for their Favorites

Brandywine Living at the Savoy

Evening Star Quilters donated a dozen quilts to the folks at Brandywine Living at the Savoy, specifically for their memory care unit, located on the border of Queens and Nassau. A friend who volunteers there contacted us to say,

“I wanted you to see what we did with the quilts. We had a quilt show and then an auction where the residents could use their brandy bucks ( the fake money they win for playing bingo and such).”

Isn’t that a wonderful idea? They actually hung the quilts all around the room in a show format so the residents could ooh and ahh and decide what they liked and then they actually got to bid on them with their fake money and then keep them!
