COMMUNITY News:
 
Atomic City Quilts is hosting a raffle for a full-size hand-made quilt to raise funds for breast cancer research, education and treatment.
 
The pink quilt was hand-made by Don’s and Inge’s Creations.
 
Raffle tickets are $25 (cash or check) and only 100 tickets will be sold. The raffle drawing is 11 a.m. Saturday, July 28 at Atomic City Quilts at 1247 Central Ave. Because the number of tickets is limited, it is advised to purchase tickets early.
 
Funds raised will go to the non-profit Susan G. Komen Foundation, which is highly rated on Charity Navigator with a 96 for accountability and transparency.
 
Since its inception in 1982, Susan G. Komen has invested more than $2.8 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 30 countries. Komen reaches millions of people every year with lifesaving breast health information.
 
The funds will go to Susan G. Komen through the Seattle 3-Day. Los Alamos resident Nancy Partridge is participating in the 60-mile walk for breast cancer Sept. 14-17. This is Partridge’s 18th year raising funds for breast cancer research, education and treatment. Last year the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer named Partridge a lifetime achievement walker, and this year Susan G. Komen has named her a Super Fundraiser for raising more than $35,000 for breast cancer research, education and treatment.
 
Atomic City Quilts is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The store phone is 505.662.1416.
