FROM: Sandy Compton, Communications Committee Member
Patches of Hope 2005 Quilt Auction (306) 791-4060
BROADCAST: Immediate Release


BACKGROUND: Patches of Hope is proof that a small group of people can make a big difference. In 2002, a group of co-workers in Saskatchewan launched the Patches of Hope Quilt Auction after losing a number of their colleagues to cancer. Thanks to support from the community, the first three years of the auction have been a great success. 2005 will be the event's fourth year.

This year's auction will take place October 13 and thanks to your media support, the event is sold out. We have had a significant number of people buy tickets at the door in previous years. We need to let the general public know that the event is sold out and that tickets will not be available at the door this year.

SCRIPT:

THANKS TO THE GENEROUS SUPPORT OF OUR SPONSORS AND ALL THOSE WHO BOUGHT TICKETS, THE PATCHES OF HOPE 2005 QUILT AUCTION HAS BEEN SOLD OUT. TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE OCTOBER 13 QUILT AUCTION WILL GO TO THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY TO HELP FUND CANCER RESEARCH AND CANCER PATIENT SUPPORT HERE IN SASKATCHEWAN.

PATCHES OF HOPE...FIGHTING CANCER - STITCH BY STITCH.
