But Manny wasn't just volunteering at the Bee Booth, he was busy taking 2nd Prize for Genisus.

"In 2014, I decided to learn how to make a quilt. I researched and found the Wandering Foot Quilt Guild. I am now a member of the WFQG and 3rd Vice President (Fund Raising). I entered my first quilt "Noah's Ark' in the 2016 Los Angeles County Fair and came in 3rd Place. I am so thrilled my second quilt, 'Genesis,' came in 2nd Place in the 2017 Los Angeles County Fair."
