A limited number of tickets are still available for the Naples Garden Club’s 2012 House and Garden Tour on Saturday, February 4, 2012. Outstanding and unique homes and gardens have been selected in Old Naples, Aqualane Shores and Port Royal.
Homes with spectacular outdoor living spaces, landscaped fountains, infinity pools, French and British influences, a cottage featured in Dream Houses, and contemporary designs will be sure to please the most discerning attendee. Floral designs created by our members will be displayed throughout each marvelous house and garden. Your general admission ticket for $85 will include a guided bus tour from home to home, free admission and a 10% gift shop discount at the Naples Botanical Garden, a tote bag filled with goodies and the chance to win some great prizes. Light refreshments will be served at the Kapnick Center. Meet the author and purchase your very own signed Dream Houses book. Raffle tickets for several fabulous items will be for sale. All proceeds benefit the Naples Garden Club’s community contributions.
Our major fundraising effort, the House and Garden Tour is designed to help fulfill the Club’s mission by providing access to outstanding homes and gardens, educating the public on plant materials, and showcasing the creative capabilities of our members’ horticultural and floral designs. The Naples Garden Club is a member of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs and National Garden Clubs, Inc. Money raised from this event is reinvested in our community by endowed fellowships to students and grants to various worthy organizations including Naples Botanical Garden, Habitat for Humanity, David Lawrence Center and Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Most recently, funds established the Naples Garden Club Idea Garden located in the Scott Florida Garden at the Naples Botanical Garden. A fellowship endowed fund at Florida Gulf Coast University for graduate and undergraduate students majoring in horticulture, a botany-related field, or environmental studies is awarded each year to a student conducting research at the Kapnick Center at Naples Botanical Garden.
