Mask Sewing Contest 😷 Benefiting Ronald McDonald House & StillBrave

Join your fellow WMCCAI members as we launch a mask-sewing contest! The contest will involve chapter members sewing cloth face masks to be donated to two of our charitable partners, the local Ronald McDonald House and Stillbrave. The member who makes and donates the most masks will receive a Visa gift card prize and bragging rights!

The contest runs July 22 – October 16, 2020. Participants have until midnight on Friday, October 16 to turn their mask donations in. Donation boxes will be set up at one Virginia location, one Maryland location and one will be available at the 2020 WMCCAI Golf Classic event on October 16.

A Zoom masking-making party will be held in August and will include a mask-making tutorial. Stay tuned for the date of the upcoming mask-making party!
