The Gardener’s Annual Fundraising Party was Friday night, October 5, and a fun time was had by all. Sandra and Keith Hudson hosted about 65 Gardeners and spouses. After coming up a walkway lined with lanterns, we were greeted with a lovely Pimms cup punch-bowl in the foyer. Sandra arranged for many special touches: a beautiful setting, a melodious piano player, car valet and lovely weather.
We all enjoyed the decorations, delicious food prepared by the executive committee, the balloon wine auction, the silent auction and the friendly bartenders!
A special thanks to all of the helpers. They gave up much of their time for all of us to have the perfect party. It is hard to enumerate all of the many behind the scenes lovely things that were done to help Sandra and to make the party so elegant. It was heart-warming to see the great teamwork of our group. And many thanks, also, to those who attended, cooked, donated and purchased at the party. The party grossed about $7,300, which was similar to last years total. A final tally will be forthcoming.
Sandra and Keith Hudson were so gracious to have us. Sandra’s energy, creativity, and generosity are endless. Many thanks again to both Hudson’s
and everyone who worked so hard to make the evening a success.
