Tom and Becky Goodwill Ambassadors Annual Quilt Raffle features a quilt donated by Pat Waelder of the Hickory Stick Quilt Shop in downtown Hannibal. Each year the Tom and Becky program receives a quilt from Pat, who was instrumental in creating the quilt raffle as a way of raising funds in support of the Tom and Becky Scholarship Fund.
Former Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatchers; who are graduating seniors from Hannibal High School may apply for cash scholarships. Winners are selected based on; whether have they continued to be that Goodwill Ambassador for the city of Hannibal after serving as Tom or Becky, their academic achievement, involvement within school and the community, and whether have they been positive role models for their peers.
Raffle tickets will be available from any of the current Tom or Becky Ambassadors or at the Museum Gallery lobby, 120 N. Main Street, Hannibal. Raffle tickets are one for $2.00 or six for $10.00 and 100% of proceeds support the Tom and Becky Scholarship Fund. Drawing is to be held on December 10th and the winner will be notified by phone. The quilt can be mailed at no charge.
