Applebee's Fund Raiser a SUCCESS!

Once again you did a great job of supporting the Camo Quilt Project by dining at Applebee's.  The event was held on July 12, 2012 and Applebee's donated a % of the food sales to our project for any diner presenting the flyer.  We do not have the final report, but the Sheboygan Applebee's reported that they will have over $700 to donate to us.  The Sheboygan location gave 25% and the other participating Applebee's gave 15%.  We have not heard from any of the other locations as to how much they raised.  This fund raiser was a great success because of all our supporters who went to Applebee's to dine. The Sheboygan location was SUPER BUSY and we are sure the other locaions were also hopping with CQP supporters.  Applebee's likes our project so much they want to do another fund raiser in October 2012.  Watch for further details to come in September.

Nothing motivates our volunteers more than having someone who received a camo quilt stop into our workshop to say thank you.  This happened a couple months ago.  LTC Robert Grierson and his family were travelling from their home town, Dubuque IA, to vacation in northern WI.  Their travel plans included stopping in Plymouth WI to visit the Camo Quilt Project.  Robert and his family happened to stop in just as Linda Wieck was leaving for the day.  Linda invited them in and The Grierson Family was given a grand tour of the workshop.  LTC Grierson was especially thankful for receiving his quilt while serving in Afghanistan.  He told Linda, "It was the only piece of bedding I had for half my tour".  Hugs, tears and thank yous were shared before this special family were on their way again.

Although the Griersons arrived at the Camo Quilt Project after the volunteers had left for the day, Linda was sure to let our volunteers know they came and how grateful LTC Grierson was to have a camo quilt.  Having that visit is really an encouragement to keep on cutting, sewing and sending the quilts to our young men and women serving in the Middle East.

THANK YOU to everyone who supported the CQP by dining at Applebee's on Feb 2, 2012. The result was a donation of $1,182.

On February 2, 2012, APPLEBEE'S restaurants owned by Wisconsin Hospitality Group held a Dine to Donate event to support the Camo Quilt Project. Applebee's donated 15% of the total of the Guest Check for all who brought in a Dine to Donate/Camo Quilt Project flyer. The Sheboygan WI location was "bursting at the seams" with CQP supporters and volunteers from all over Wisconsin reported seeing CQP supporters dining at Applebee's that day. THANK YOU!
