CONGRATULATIONS to Brenda O’Keefe, owner of Joey’s Pancake House as the winner of the “Gateway to the Smokies” quilt block raffle! The drawing for the block was held at the Haywood County Visitor Center on Thursday, June 2nd when a visitor from Arizona was chosen to do the honor of randomly pulling the winning ticket. Brenda O’Keefe was the lucky name on the winning ticket and the Haywood County Tourism Development Authority staff presented her with the block at her restaurant. The block will be installed on the exterior of Joey’s Pancake House in Maggie Valley so that both patrons of the restaurant and the general public can enjoy this beautiful piece of Haywood County heritage.
The TDA would like thank everyone who purchased a raffle ticket as it helped raise money to further the efforts of the Haywood County Quilt Trail. To learn more, please contact the TDA – 828-944-0761. The TDA looks forward to continuing the expansion of the popular trail with new quilt block additions in the coming months.
