Dawsonville resident Charles McCormack was the winner of the Heart in Hand Quilt Guild’s annual quilt raffle to benefit The Bowen Center for the Arts in December. A raffle quilt is prepared and donated every year in an effort to help The Bowen support programs for children and the arts throughout the year.

More than 45 members participated in the queen-size quilt “Autumn Mountains” through planning, sewing and promotion.
McCormack paid $5 to enter the raffle.

Jacquelyn Somerville, President of the Quilt Guild said, “We hope Charles will enjoy the quilt for many years to come. Thank you for those who sold raffle tickets and the supporters of our amazing art center.”
