Quilts of Comfort Auction

You're invited!

Quilts of Comfort Auction to benefit the Augusta Health Hospice of the Shenandoah Gifted Care Program.

Many in our community lack the financial means to pay for hospice services.

Through generosity of others, we are able to offer "gifted care" to those who qualify for support. By actively fundraising, we are able to continue offering care to those in need. As we look back on the results of past events, we thank everyone who donated, supported, and bid with their heart on the beautifully quilted items donated by our community. Many lives have been touched by this generosity and these contributions have truly made a difference. It has been amazing to witness the love and compassion shown for others!

"This quilt is dedicated to the many, many Hospice volunteers who make a commitment every day to a patient in Hospice care. They are so awesome and so invested in Hospice. The lyrics written by Simon & Garfunkel truly acknowledges the profound services offered by our volunteers. I have taken the liberty to change some of the words so I could apply them to our Hospice volunteers."

"LIKE A BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS"
When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, we will dry them all;
We're on your side, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found,
Like a bridge over troubled waters,
We will be there for you

When you're down and out,
When you're at the end,
When evening falls so hard,
We will comfort you.
We will take your part,
When darkness comes and pain is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled waters, we will be there for you.

Sail on silver one, sail on by,
Your time has come to shine,
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine.

If you need a friend, we're sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled waters, we will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled waters, we will ease your mind.
