Highlights & Happenings

- Refreshments on the garden terrace
- Free road-worthy goody bag
- Special “Flower Power” prize drawing
- 20th Anniversary Garden Tour historic display
Children’s Art: In honor of 20 years of LACASA’s Garden Tour helping survivors bloom, we invited our youngest clients to draw flowers that represent themselves. You can view these beautiful and inspiring works at the Children’s Garden of Art, on display at LACASA Collection. Children’s Art is available for purchase on special 20th anniversary Garden Tour T-shirts.
Blooming Raffle: Raffle prizes are on display at Greiger Garden #8. Purchase tickets for your chance to win! You can view our lovely raffle baskets at the LACASA Collection starting in mid-June, and can pre-purchase raffle tickets at the store prior to tour weekend. (This option offers more time to fill out your raffle tickets and to choose which baskets you want to enter to win.)
Scavenger Hunt: Pick up an entry form at any garden and join the hunt! Fabulous prizes await our winners, who will be drawn from the participants who find all of the scavenger hunt items. Scavengers will not only uncover fun clues, but will discover how their support of Garden Tour helps LACASA fulfill its mission.
Summertime Quilt Raffle: The Casual Quilters Guild of Brighton has created a beautiful, light and airy summertime quilt for our raffle this year! This hand-stitched work of art is on display at Jagdfeld Garden #6, where quilt raffle tickets are available.
Artistic Praise: We want to thank our contributing artist, Karri Mohr, of The Painted Garden (paintedgarden.com), for her hand-painted Garden Tour homeowner slates, and for her design of this year’s flower-of-the-year. Look for information at the gardens about how you can purchase Karri’s flower design on coffee mugs, t-shirts and more!
