LAURINBURG — Faith Presbyterian Church will host its 14th Annual Ministry and Mission Golf Tournament on Saturday where members will raffle off a handmade Amish Quilt.

The event will begin with a 10 a.m. shotgun start at the Scotch Meadows Country Club.

This is the church’s 12th year raffling a quilt, that this year is valued at about $700. The raffle tickets are $2.

The queen-sized quilt was made by Country Lane Quilts in Leola, Pennsylvania. It has earth tones and a summer wreath pattern embodied on one side and the other side is solid white, making it reversible.

“It’s just beautiful … one of the most beautiful quilts,” said church member Jane Callahan. “I have been selling quilt tickets like crazy, all I have to do is show a card stock photo of the quilt and people want to buy a raffle ticket.”

Proceeds will go toward the Presbyterian Homes and Scotia Village retirement community for annual appeal drive. The drive collects money to support the fund for residents at Scotia Village who have outlived their finances.

Callahan said the church hopes to donate around $500 to the drive and the remaining proceeds will go to local programs for mission and ministry.

“We are so excited about being a part of the annual drive,” she said. “A lot of Scotia Village worshipers are so supportive of Faith family.”

Tickets can be purchased from any Faith Presbyterian Church member. For information, contact Callahan at 910-352-9687.
