This Month's Highlights

One-of-a-Kind Quilt Drawing at C-STEM Holiday Social

Last month, we told you about the amazing quilt donation C-STEM received from the Gulf Coast Modern Quilt Guild in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. To support C-STEM’s programs, we will be giving our supporters the chance to win this beautiful piece in a drawing at the annual C-STEM Holiday Social. For every $100 you donate in support of our Holiday Social, you will receive one entry to win. The Dec. 14 event will take place from 5:30-9 p.m. at the office of Five Woods LLC. We also plan to offer ways to participate for those who wish to do so virtually. Watch for more details in  next month’s C-STEM newsletter.  REGISTER TO WIN!
