Fundraiser A Huge Success
The Simpsonville Garden Club held a fundraiser on Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 8:00 am to 1:00 PM at the Simpsonville Community Center. The combination Tag Sale, Plant Sale and Bake Sale netted over $1,400, all of which will go towards downtown Simpsonville beautification projects and other garden club projects.
Tag sale items included household articles, small appliances, record albums (LP’s), books, and much more. Club members potted up plants from their home gardens including locally grown annuals and perennials. Baked goods were home-baked treats by garden club members. Local merchants also offered support by generous donations of gift certificates and merchandise. Donors included:
Three Generations Boutique; Ice Cream Station; Patio Imports, Greenville; Merle Norman; The Hallmark Shop; Frank & Co 's Pizza Cafe; Sheila’s Sheer Elegance; Carolina Olive Oil; Vaughn’s Country Store;
Beneficial Massage and Bodywork; Bi-Lo; Mr. Billy McWhite; and Mr. Mike Burton.
President Judy Rogers said, “We were delighted with the turnout and the support of the community and local businesses. The funds raised will go a long way towards helping us fulfill our mission to accomplish civil plantings in town.”
Leftovers from the bake sale were donated to the local firefighters and policemen. Leftovers from the tag sale were also donated to Miracle Hill.your paragraph here.
