Alder Group is proud and honored to showcase 2 of the 5 spectacular Lamorinda Gardens to be presented by the Moraga Junior Women’s Club. The tour will take place on Saturday, May 5, 2012 from 10 am – 3 pm and will showcase 5 spectacular Lamorinda Gardens.
In 2010, our garden tour broke attendance records by 30% and sold over 600 tickets through our membership and 3 ticket outlets at Orchard Nursery, McDonnell Nursery and Across the Way. Between sponsorships, advertising, and funds generated from ticket sales, we were able to donate over $25,000 to the Food Bank of CCSC and Farm 2 Kids.
As this event is our largest annual fundraiser, our target for 2012 is to raise at least $25,000 to donate to STAND! For Families Free of Violence. As the only comprehensive family violence prevention agency in Contra Costa County, Stand! assists more than 11,000 clients annually by providing comprehensive prevention, intervention, and treatment services to end the cycle of violence and child abuse. The funds raised by the garden tour will go directly to support the onsite, emergency shelter Therapeutic Child Care (TCC) program. The TCC program helps children heal from trauma and develop social and academic skills needed for success. These funds are especially vital this year to Stand!, as First 5 of Contra Costa, the primary funding source for TCC, has eliminated funding due to State budget cuts. We have a unique opportunity to support this important program in the upcoming year.
As we continually strive to build on our reputation of producing the premier charitable event of this kind in our area, we look to you, our local business owners, for your continued partnership and support in sponsorship and advertising opportunities. Your participation is paramount in reaching our fundraising goal…and will have lasting impact on our community.
As members of your local community and women working to improve the quality of life for families and children in our area, we thank you for your consideration & support.
