Event Hosting - Sponsorship Available
For the first time the International Quilt Festival will be coming to Long Beach, CA July 25-28, 2008. This is their debut year here. There will be literally thousands of quilters in our city. Some will be here for several days, including the vendors, and some will simply drive in for a day. While they are all in the area it seems to me it would be a great idea to host an event such as a concert or BBQ or Luau at the beach. Clearly the Long Beach Convention Center will not be available as they Quilt Festival and all of the vendors will have it packed.
The cost of entry for anyone who would like to attend the event would be one single Quilt of Valor for someone wounded while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. The estimate for the number of Quilts of Valor we would collect would be several thousand. The fee is whatever the cost of the event is and the interim storage and delivery of Quilts of Valor. All Quilts of Valor would be turned over to Quilts of Valor-Socal for presentation.
