The 2017 Garden Party will introduce something new for our guests.  The Duck Pond Store will include favorites from past Garden Parties. All donations to the Duck Pond Store are tax-deductible and help fund green space projects and maintenance in the Duck Pond Park.  The Ladies of the Lake Foundation, Inc. is our financial partner for the Garden Party.  LOLF is a 501c (3) tax-exempt organization, Tax ID # 27-2333366.

Here is what is planned:

Drunken Duck – The wine auction is a very popular Garden Party tradition.  Our goal is to have eight cases for our guests bidding pleasure.  Neighbors can support the wine auction by providing us with a bottle of your favorite wine, valued at $30 or more, or by giving us a check for $30 made payable to the Ladies of the Lake Foundation.  The money collected will go towards purchasing wine to increase the attractiveness of each box of wine selections.  The collection process will begin in April 2017.  Any questions, contact Angela Stallings.

Muscovy Market – A collection of cool stuff for purchase including items ranging from jams and jellies, Garden Party tea towels, and candles to yard art and anything that includes a duck. If you have any donations for The Muscovy Market, please contact Jill Helmer.

Park Provisions – Gift certificates to favorite eateries will be available for our guests bidding pleasure.  Who doesn’t like to try new places and enjoy an evening out?  If you have any donations to Park Provisions, please contact Maureen Lomenick.

Party City – The five private parties at the 2015 Garden Party went like hotcakes!  Priced as a per person amount, our guests will be able to sign up for a very fun party created by neighbors just for the Garden Party.  If you have any ideas for a private party, please contact Suzanne Boas.

Tickled Turtle Travel – Our guests are always interested in the opportunity to bid on vacation homes.  If you would like to donate a weekend or a week at your vacation home, please contact Toni LePage.
