Dear Gardening Friends,
I see that it has been 3 months since I wrote a Newsletter that wasn't specifically about an upcoming fund-raising Event...so time to re-cap the results! With deep gratitude to our amazing customers who attended our Nursery Sales, we're happy to announce the final tallies:
The two Sales/Food Drives combined yielded $700 in monetary donations and more than 600 lbs. of food donations for the L.A. Regional Food Bank! They sent very nice "Thank You" letters after each event. We plan to continue with 2 of these efforts each year, and I'm certain we'll only increase our collections!
The Sale/Fund Raiser to assist the Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts in Japan collected a total of $1,025 in monetary donations! We're proud of the results, and the format seems to work: we offer nursery-wide discounts to get folks here, customers make a donation to participate, and then we donate a percentage of the total day's sales. Everyone seemed to have a great time, and we'll definitely do it again!
