The daily Quilt Auction is open to everyone and will take place in The Spot near Concessions in the Grand Ballroom Foyer. Auction times are Thursday at 12:00 PM, Friday at 1:00 PM and Saturday at 2:00 PM 

Proceeds from the auction will go to a breast cancer organization and to future education programs at regional quilt guild meetings. Each auction quilt will be labeled as to where the proceeds will go. Quilts can be viewed each morning at the Expo prior to the auction.
