WE ASKED YOU TO giveBIG, AND YOU DID!!!

A BIG thank you to everyone who participated on the day of giveBIG. You donated over $3200!! Each dollar you gave up to $3000 was matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of special garden supporters--a total of over $6200 for  the gardens!!!

Your overwhelming generosity funds this summer's weekly visits by the Seattle Conservation Corps, providing the water the gardens at Galer, Boston, and McGraw need to thrive in these usually warm, dry months.

Thank you for keeping the gardens beautiful!

MAY 10th IS ALMOST HERE! GET READY TO giveBIG FOR THE GARDENS

Do you know that the City paid zero dollars in 2016 for the upkeep of the gardens along QA Ave at Galer, Boston, and McGraw??

You and faithful donors like you keep the daffodils from dying and the wisteria watered. Everyone who has been cheered by the Lenten roses or been caught off guard by a whiff of lovely lavender thanks you for your dedication.



Will you give a little bigger this year?? Thanks to some generous garden supporters, all gifts received up to $3,000 during giveBIG on Wednesday, May 10th will be matched dollar for dollar. Reaching our goal would mean a total of $6,000---the amount needed to water the gardens this summer. That's a really BIG deal!!! Now more than ever, you can make the flowers bloom in profusion!!

You can schedule your gift now to have it count for our giveBIG match or make your gift on giveBIG Wednesday itself. Either way, you'll surely make the plants grow and the flowers bloom.


Thanks
Sheila, Laura, Kathy, Ellen, Margaret, Wayne

Give BIG is Fast Approaching

GET READY FOR GIVE BIG


The gardens on Queen Anne Avenue at Galer, Boston, and McGraw can't do it without you. The summer months are dry in Seattle. Only you have the power to save the flowers from wilting under the harsh sun and roadside heat at the top of Queen Anne Ave.

Donate to Picture Perfect Queen Anne through GiveBIG on Wednesday, May 10th, and help pay the staggering $6,000 plus water bill expected this summer!

Thanks to some generous garden supporters, all donations up to $3,000 through GiveBIG will be matched on a one-for-one basis! Now more than ever, your power can make a difference!

Sincere Thanks,
Margaret Okamoto, Kathy King, Sheila Callahan, Ellen Monrad, Laura Day and Wayne Winder
