Quilt winner Michelle Brainard, right, and quilter Sally Dwyer hold up the Wounded Warrior fundraiser raffle quilt.
The Sons of Norway quilt raffle earned around $1000 for the Wounded Warrior Project-a national organization dedicated to raising awareness and providing resources to injured service members.
The Sons of Norway sold 220 raffle tickets and drew the winner last weekend.
Michelle Brainard won the quilt, which was pieced by Sally Dwyer.
The pattern is from a nationally recognized pattern called 'Quilt of Valor'.
"It feels good to be part of a good thing," Dwyer said. "There are thousands of quilts being raffled across the country for this project."
This is the first time the Sons of Norway has donated proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project. Donations can still be made at http://www.woundedwarrior.org.
