9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Carol Joy Holling Camp
Join in the 34th Annual Quilt Auction at Carol Joy Holling Camp on July 30! The day promises good food, great fun, and lots of beautiful quilts donated by friends of camp. The auction and lunch will be held rain or shine. Bring your friends and families!
Some elements of the Quilt Auction will still look different this year. We will follow the standards and protocols for large group gatherings set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our state and local health departments. This page will be updated as specific changes are made.
If you have questions, contact Dani at DHatfield@NLOM.org or 402-944-2544.
Silent Auction on Qtego: The silent auction will be online again this year, and the grassy area will have fiber internet which will make bidding a breeze! People near and far will have the opportunity to join the silent auction bidding fun through an online auction platform called Qtego. If you are unfamiliar with Qtego, don’t worry, we will have many volunteers with tablets at the event to help you bid on your favorite items. We will also be sending out information and instructions in the spring on how to bid with Qtego, for those not in attendance. The live auction will not be changing, and bidding on live auction items will be through live or proxy bidding only.
Quilts can be delivered to Carol Joy Holling Camp between June 1 and July 22. They should be placed in a plastic bag with a completed copy of the donation form (below). Quilts received after 5 p.m. on July 22 will be saved for the 2023 Quilt Auction.

Quilts in the past have auctioned for anywhere between $25 and $20,000. Lance Larsen, a professional auctioneer from Cordova, Neb., is volunteering his time to auction the quilts. Depending on the number of quilts donated, a selected group will be sold through a silent auction. Bidding will open at the silent auction at 9 a.m. and close at 1:30 p.m. with winning bids for the day released at approximately 3 p.m.
The quilts will have numbered cards attached indicating the order in which they will be auctioned. This way, bidders can approximate when their favorite quilts will be up for auction. The cards also include information about the quilt donor and the size, type, and design of the quilt.
No pets; service dogs only.
Year after year we hear rave reviews about the Quilt Auction lunch. It will be served from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. and costs $7 for adults, $4 for kids (4-12), and free for children 3 and under. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available upon request.
