Kin Club of Russell Donates $28,045.58 to Victoria’s Quilts Canada

Following its second successful Catch the Ace lottery, the Kin Club of Russell started to divide the profits amongst its participants with a massive cheque of $28,045.58 to Victoria’s Quilts Canada. Kin Club President Cindy Anthony explained, “We partnered with Victoria’s Quilts Canada, Russell Minor Hockey Association and Cystic Fibrosis Canada for this last session of Catch the Ace lottery”. The Kin Club of Russell reached out and requested partners to join them in selling Catch the Ace tickets, which in turn generated revenue for these organizations.

Victoria Quilts Canada, through the Russell Friends of Victoria’s Quilts, sold over 6,000 tickets on their own to benefit their charity. Victoria’s Quilts Canada provides free of charge handmade quilts and carrying bags for cancer patients to help them through their fight. Over their last 19 years, they have provided close to 70,000 quilts to cancer patients!

Led by the charismatic Marie-Claire Ivanski, her team was aggressively selling Catch the Ace tickets throughout the area. Marie-Claire stated, "Words cannot express my gratitude to everyone that bought Catch the Ace tickets in support of Victoria's Quilts. This incredible amount will help the hard-working busy quilting bees to continue to make comforting loving quilts for cancer patients. I would also like to thank and congratulate the Kin Club of Russell for all the hard work they do for the betterment of our community and thank them for accepting us in the draw".

The Kin Club of Russell are gearing up for their third Catch the Ace lottery and this time tickets will be available for purchase online, along with its regular sales in various locations including Etienne Brule Brewery where the draws will be held every Sunday at 3:15 PM.

Cheque presentations to Russell Minor Hockey Association and Cystic Fibrosis Canada will be forthcoming.
