You hear the word a lot, thrown around casually through the course of a conversation. It is often used to describe the morale and character of an individual who overcomes hardships and does not waver from their goals. In an individual it is easy to see the results of meeting the challenge. For a team it is much, much harder.
The Boys Home Basketball Team just wrapped up their season with a 10-19 record. While this does not compare well to last season’s breakout year, it did show how well the team overcame a lot of obstacles to get to that point. It wasn’t a tale of one season, but of two.
Boys Home of Virginia is very excited to raffle this beautiful quilt made by Executive Director Donnie Wheatley’s sister, Phyllis Gibson. Phyllis is a very talented quilter and she has made it a tradition to donate handmade quilts to Boys Home each year for us to raffle. Phyllis and her friends Alan and Nancy Kontak also work hard each year to make sure every boy has a handmade quilt on their bed. We’re so thankful for the dedication Phyllis shows by blessing Boys Home and the boys with her talents.
The quilt we’re raffling this year is 96″ x 92″ and is a professionally quilted “Charleston Romance” pattern quilt. Tickets are $5 for 1 ticket or $45 for 10 tickets. We will draw the winner on March 17, 2017. All proceeds will go to Religious Life at Boys Home.
