Lutherdale Bible Camp holds its 29th annual quilt auction and fest on Saturday, Aug. 8. The quilt auction is held until all the quilts are sold. Conducted by auctioneers Gary Finley and Tom Kleist, live bidding starts at 10 a.m.

More than 295 donated quilts of all sizes, from baby to king size, wall hangings and table runners, were handmade by hundreds of quilters from Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, California and Florida. Some are completely hand quilted. View the quilts online at Lutherdale.org. Silent bids are accepted online through midnight Aug. 7 and in person until 9 a.m. Aug. 8.

The quilt preview is held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7, with silent bids accepted on quilts and silent auction baskets. Friday night fish fry is available for those attending the preview.
On Saturday, Lutherdale's chef will be serving lunch in the air-conditioned dining hall.

Lutherdale Fest is fun for the whole family. There is a Kids Lounge for youth to hang out with our summer staff and enjoy a game of gaga ball, check out the farm, make crafts and eat s'mores. The Kids Lounge is open  from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. — the cost is $15 and includes lunch.

Pontoon rides depart every 30 minutes from the docks on Lauderdale Lakes.

Funds raised from this event are being supplemented by Thrivent Financial. Proceeds help kids attend camp.
