Enter to win a handmade cardinal quilt!

Proceeds benefit education and conservation at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!


From November 1 - November 15, 2020, enter to win a beautiful quilt handmade with love by one of our extraordinary volunteers. Let us tell you a little bit about her...


Before COVID, Diane and her husband Ray were frequently our Thursday volunteers. If you visited Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Diane may have greeted you from the front desk while Ray worked on a variety of projects to help our maintenance team. In her off time, Diane was acting as one of Santa's elves... Working on a very special project, with a very special purpose in mind.

When Diane told us what she was working on, we were so incredibly touched and couldn't wait to share the story with you. She has spent her time, talent and materials to create a winter themed cardinal quilt, and then DONATED it to us with the condition that we use it to raise funds for Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge!

That's where you come in. Help us honor Diane's request by entering the raffle today!


The quilt measures about 64.5" x 52". The possibilities for using or displaying this piece as part of your winter decor (or holiday gift giving?) are endless.


Entries will be sold for $5 each from November 1, 2020 through November 15, 2020. When you purchase online, your name will be entered into the drawing for as many entries as you purchase. Ohio residents only! The winning entry will be drawn on Monday, November 16, 2020 at 12pm EST. The winner will be notified by phone following the drawing. You then have 24 hours to return our call or forfeit the prize and a second chance drawing will occur. We can arrange for pickup or shipping.
