How You Can Help

Bright Hopes quilts and programs are possible because of generous donations from individuals, businesses, clubs, and other groups. We also have several fundraisers each year to help pay for materials, equipment, and programs:

Annual Yard Sale
Our huge annual yard sale is held on Friday and Saturday either the last weekend in April or the first weekend in May. Conveniently located at the home of one of our wonderful members near major roads in Stony Brook, NY. We have clothes, housewares, furniture, and more at bargain prices. We gladly accept items for our annual yard sale! Please contact Bright Hopes at 631-371-6277 or to make a donation.

Gallery North Outdoor Art Show Demonstration and Quilt Raffle
Since 2003, Gallery North in Setauket, New York, has graciously accepted us as demonstrators for their annual Outdoor Art Show. While some of our volunteers cut, sew, and assemble a quilt, others sell raffle tickets. We display eight quilts, but there is only one winner. The winner gets to choose whichever quilt they want. This is the only quilt not donated each year.
