Blooming Raffle: Raffle baskets are on display at Maher Garden #11. Purchase tickets for your chance to win! You can view our lovely raffle baskets in advance starting in mid-June at the LACASA Collection, our unique charity resale boutique. The store is located in the Kroger Plaza at Michigan Avenue & Highland Road in Howell. This gives you a chance to preview the baskets, purchase your tickets, fill them out, and enter the raffle ahead of time, saving you precious time on tour days.

Scavenger Hunt: Pick up an entry form at any garden and join the hunt! Each person to correctly complete and submit the scavenger hunt clue form will be entered into a drawing to win a beautiful bird house made by Linda Bader of Bader Acres in Howell.
Summertime Quilt Raffle: The Casual Quilters Guild of Brighton has created and donated a beautiful jewel tone, reversible summer-weight quilt for our raffle this year! This hand-stitched work of art is on display at DeLuca Garden #1, where quilt raffle tickets are available. You also can view the workmanship of this quilt ahead of time and purchase quilt raffle tickets in advance at the LACASA Collection, 120 W. Highland Rd., Kroger Plaza, Howell.
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. Signature souvenirs with this year’s flower-of-the-year design will be available at gardens along the tour. Be sure to get yours before they’re all gone!
