Each November, we have a tradition of hosting our Holiday Gala, and for this year’s event, we were happy to partner with local organization The Big Garden. We’d like to thank all of you who joined us for the evening. We had a great time, and we hope you did too! We’re glad to say that together, we raised over $5,500 to support the important work being accomplished by The Big Garden. This amazing organization helps fight hunger here in Omaha and other surrounding communities by building community gardens, providing gardening and cooking education, and creating an engaged public awareness.
It was a beautiful evening with holiday lights strung throughout the greenhouse and Christmas decorations throughout the store. Local band Peregrine filled the greenhouse with their soulful harmonies, while everyone gathered around, enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres with the company of friends. Archetype Coffee was here with their mobile coffee shop serving specialty drinks, which were hugely popular. And at our gift wrap station, local calligrapher Cheryl Dyer created beautiful personalized gift tags to complete each neatly wrapped package. Everyone was in good spirits, and we loved having the chance to enjoy the evening with community partners at The Big Garden and all of you who joined us.
If you entered our raffle, you should have received an email asking for your feedback about the event – so we can continue to improve our Holiday Gala for next year. Take a moment to complete our survey, and we’ll enter your name in another drawing for a $100 gift card to our store. Thank you again for coming, and we hope to see you again this holiday season.
