Great Gardens Party

May 9, 2018 6:00 pm 9:00 pm

The Great Gardens Party is a signature fundraising event at Meijer Gardens every year, and in 2018 it will be even more special. For this year’s celebration, we will be remembering Eileen DeVries, a longtime Meijer Gardens Board Member. She loved this event, serving as Committee Co-Chair for many years. Please help us continue her legacy by joining us for one of the most colorful and engaging events of the year! You will wine and dine with friends and colleagues and have an opportunity to support Meijer Gardens’ mission by participating in silent and live auctions, a raffle, wine garden, and a few special activities based on Eileen’s favorite things.

There are many ways to participate:

  • Host a table for 10 people by becoming an event sponsor. Sponsorship levels include Blossom ($10,000), Bud ($5,000) or Seed ($2,500).
  • Purchase event tickets for yourself, friends, family and/or clients at $100 each.
  • Donate an item for the silent auction or live auction. Unique or experiential items are welcome.
  • Purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win two reserved-seat concert tickets for the entire 2018 Fifth Third Bank Summer Concert Series.
