— Members of the Elizabethtown Thrift Shop will be raffling off prizes from businesses and residents to support local charities.

The group will sell the raffle tickets from Oct. 15 until the drawing on Nov. 19.

The grand prize or the largest drawing will be for a handmade twin-size quilt made by Mary Jane Lamb, of Elizabethtown.

The quilt is the largest of 15 prizes to be raffled off, according to Elizabethtown Thrift Shop President Gay Olcott. Other prizes donated by area businesses include: a gift certificate for a $50 car detailing, two wine baskets, a gift certificate for an oil and filter change, a $25 gas card, a gift certificate for a large pizza and large soda, a handmade Adirondack style sofa pillow, a special basket of assorted goodies, and four gift cards worth $30, $25, $12 and $10.

Olcott said raffle tickets will be available at the Elizabethtown Thrift Shop located on the second floor of the Deer’s Head Restaurant, 7552 Court St., or tickets can be purchased from one of the many volunteers.

The group who runs the Elizabethtown Thrift Shop contributes all profits to local charities, Olcott said. The thrift shop is run by the churches of Elizabethtown and Lewis. The churches involved are The Church of the Good Shepherd, St. Elizabeth’s, Lewis Congregational, and Elizabethtown Congregational. Olcott said the group also money raised at the thrift shop goes to area fire and flood victims and victims of domestic violence.
