Garden Getaway Weekend Approaches
Get your tickets now for the annual Samaritan House Homeless Family Shelter Garden Getaway Weekend, which takes place this year on June 22 and 23!
This year events begin on Saturday, June 22 with a delicious dinner paired with both oral and silent auctions. Held at the Newport Shilo Inn and Suites, 536 SW Elizabeth in Newport, the doors will open at 5:00. The full-course dinner features a choice of entrees as well as dessert and complimentary wine. The tickets are $50 person, and attendees will enjoy the music of the Bad Lee Bent Trio as well as games that will be played throughout the evening. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
On Sunday, June 23, the Garden Tour will start at noon. This year the seven featured gardens are along Yaquina Bay Road and just outside Toledo. There is a wide variety of gardens, ranging from a garden with vegetable patches to one with exotic water features. A shuttle is provided for several gardens. The cost of the garden tour is $20. Each garden will have a raffle, and two of the gardens will have refreshments for your enjoyment.
A combined ticket for both events is $65. All proceeds go to support the Samaritan House Homeless Family Shelter, which has been sheltering, educating and guiding homeless families with children toward independence since 1988. Tickets are available at businesses throughout the county.
