A first time donor and frequent MILAGRO supporters won the drawing for the handmade quilt and wall-hanging. Thanks to the “Quilters for Christ” from First United Lutheran Kennesaw for crafting such beautiful items to use in our give-away. Individuals had their names included in the drawing for every $100 donated. 
Congratulations to the following:
First place drawing: Mike and Marge Mynhier. The Mynhier’s are members of Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Marietta, GA. They have been visiting ILAG for over a decade and have visited “at least eight times." Their first trip was to the ILAG community of La Israel. Lois Gilbert of First United Lutheran Kennesaw, who is also the quilt maker, was on the trip with them! Talk about full-circle!
Second place drawing: Ann Lindner of Atlanta. Ann has never been to visit ILAG and  is a first time donor to MILAGRO. She says, "From what my friend, Ginger Peterson Hippensteel tells me, the money will go to a great work.
Thank you for all you do."
Thanks to the Mike, Marge and Ann - and everyone - for participating in and supporting the Gala!
