Looking for a pleasant and worthy way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

On Nov. 20 from 1 until 4 p.m., Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness will host another fabric art exhibit, complete with door prizes and refreshments, at Shamrock Veterinary Clinic at 1896 Guthrie Rd. in Comox.

Featured will be the evocative quilt panels created by the North Island Quilters for Community Awareness for Dawn to Dawn’s Making it Home fundraiser.

This showing is part of the second in a series of four raffles, a major source of funding for Dawn to Dawn.

You are invited to drop by and buy a raffle ticket or art card or place a bid for the silent auction — or simply come to view the display, enter your name for a door prize and enjoy a refreshment.

The group is also encouraging members of the business community (and anyone else) to help support the homeless in our community by purchasing their own original work of fabric art piece to hang in their office or boardroom.

Dawn to Dawn was registered as a non-profit society in 2007 with the mandate to provide housing and support services to individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Dawn to Dawn thanks the folks at Shamrock Veterinary for their help in hosting this exhibit.
