Quilt Draw

Cirque du Soleil (66" x 77"))The Russell Lions Club is starting 2022 off with a bang! We will be raffling off a Quilt in support of Lions Foundation of Canada (LFC) Dog Guides. The beautiful quilt was made by renowned quilter Margaret “Maggie” Fontana* and is valued at $2,000! Entitled "Cirque du Soleil'", it measures 66" x 77" and is pictured to the right.

Who is Margaret "Maggie" Fontana?

Margaret "Maggie" Fontana is an Ottawa quilter who has not only built a solid reputation as an amazing quilter, but also a major donor of quilts for causes close to her heart.

She first started donating quilts to our club when we began sponsoring the DeafBlind Ontario “Savour the Senses” fundraiser a few years back. Her quilts were popular items sold at the live auction.

What are the LCF Dog Guides?

In the early 1980's Lions Clubs across Canada sought to develop a national project to reflect their service to Canadians with visual impairments. The result was Lions Foundation of Canada and its founding program, Canine Vision Canada, which was established in 1985. Since then the Foundation has grown to include additional Dog Guide programs: Hearing, Service, Seizure Response, Autism Assistance, Diabetic Alert and newly introduced, Facility Support.
