Samaritan House invites locals and visitors alike to join in the floral festivities of the 2013 Garden Getaway Weekend. The second Annual Garden Gala Dinner and Auction and the tenth Annual Samaritan House Secret Garden Tour will be held June 22 and 23.
The Garden Gala, which raised over $8,000 for the Samaritan House Shelter for Homeless Families, brings together the beauty of the gardens and the generosity of the individuals and businesses of Lincoln County. More than two dozen silent auction items and five exciting live auction items will be available for bidding, along with a 50/50 raffle and other games of chance.
Those wishing to attend both the Garden Gala and Garden Tour may purchase a ticket package for $65, a savings of $5. Out-of-town guests of both events are encouraged to stay at the Shilo Inn and Suites where there will be a 15% discount on the price of any room! Simply make your reservation at the Shilo as part of the Garden Getaway Weekend. Call 541-265-7701 for reservations at the Shilo, 536 SW Elizabeth Street, Newport.
A $50 ticket includes wine and dinner. The dinner will be provided by the Shilo Inn and Suites, and attendees will be able to choose between three delicious entrees: chicken piccata or herb-crusted salmon served with rice, or vegetarian lasagna, all served with vegetables. Also included are New York style cheesecake and coffee. The doors open at 5:15, with the dinner starting at 6:00.
Tickets may be purchased individually for $50, as a table of 8 for $400, or as a joint Gala/Tour ticket package for $65 per person. Tickets will go on sale beginning May 1 at the Samaritan House office and JC Market Thriftway on the corner of Hwys 20 and 101 in Newport. For more information, to purchas
