9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Carol Joy Holling Camp

Join in this exciting day at Carol Joy Holling Camp on July 31 for our 33rd Annual Quilt Auction! The day promises good food, great fun, and lots of beautiful quilts donated by friends of Carol Joy Holling Camp. The auction and lunch will be held rain or shine. Bring your friends and families! 


We know that some elements of the Quilt Auction will look different this year. We will follow the standards and protocols set by, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our state and local health departments. This page will be updated continuously as specific changes are made. 

If you have questions, contact Heather at HAbbott@NLOM.org or 402-944-2544. 

Silent Auction News:  We are excited to announce that the Silent Auction bidding will be online this year. People near and far will have the opportunity to join the Silent Auction bidding fun through an online auction platform called Qtego. For those who have joined us at the Heart of Camp Gala, this is the same platform that we use at that event.  If you are unfamiliar with Qtego, don’t worry; we will have many volunteers with iPads at the event to help you bid on your favorite items. We will also be sending out information and instructions on how to bid with Qtego in the spring, for those not in attendance. The live auction will not be changing and bidding will be through live or proxy bidding only.

Quilt Donations

Quilts can be delivered to Carol Joy Holling Camp starting June 1.  Due to the ever-changing environment with Coronavirus, we do not know if changes will be made with the delivery or packaging of quilts. We will update as we get closer.

Auction Information

Quilts in the past have auctioned for $25 to $20,000. Lance Larsen, a professional auctioneer from Cordova, NE, 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 9:00 a.m. and close at 1:30 p.m. with winning bids for the day released at approximately 3:00 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. 

Service dogs only please.


You won’t want to miss the lunch with dessert! 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 option available upon request.
