Cheyenne River Youth Project

Win a Star Quilt

Each year, to celebrate the spirit of the season and help raise funds to support its massive Wo Otúh’an Wi Toy Drive, the nonprofit Cheyenne River Youth Project in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, hosts an annual star quilt raffle. This year’s quilt has been christened “Winter Solstice.”

Hand-crafted by Cheyenne River tribal member Bonnie LeBeaux, the quilt evokes the cool tones of winter while also honoring Mother Nature. It depicts the wind, stars, and waniyetu (winter) moons. Winter is a time for the earth to rest under a blanket of snow, and the winter solstice marks the beginning of a special season dedicated to home, family, and storytelling.

And, we want our supporters to know that all funds raised through raffle ticket sales will benefit our Wo Otúh’an Wi Toy Drive, which is one of our longest-running and most important programs. We’ll be serving more than 1,500 children in 20 communities across our reservation this year, which is an enormous undertaking—one we simply couldn’t manage without our friends across the country and around the world.”

Supporters can assist with this important fundraiser in four ways:
* Buy tickets using the form below
* Sell tickets (see details below)
* Spread the word by telling family and friends

* Share raffle details through social media

Tickets are $1 each or $5 for a six-ticket packet. All proceeds benefit CRYP’s 2019 Wo Otúh’an Wi Toy Drive.

The 2019 Lakota Star Quilt Raffle runs through the end of the day on Monday, Dec. 23. The drawing will take place on December 30. 
Note: To sell tickets, please call (605) 964-8200 or send an email to Julie Garreau at She will send as many tickets as you request; they come in books of six. Once you receive your tickets, along with a quilt photo and information sheet, you will be responsible for selling those tickets. All tickets need to be turned in by Dec. 23 so CRYP can conduct the drawing as planned on December 30.
