The Children were so excited it was pretty wonderful!
One of the other organizations that she donated to was a local hospital, Lourdes Medical Center. She was told up front that they could not give the quilts to children, but they could auction them off and Torrie could choose where the monies went. Torrie donated her 5 most beautiful quilts to be auctioned with the money going to the Peds unit. The people at Lourdes were so impressed with her quilts they actually sent out a press release. Of course our local paper never ran the story because as you know "bad new sell papers not good news". So we figured that was the end of that. Now... if you want to know the rest of the story (thanks Paul Harvey) you will have to check in for part two...
I will post that in a bit!
