21st Annual Holly Berry Brunch Fundraiser

21st Annual Holly Berry Brunch Fundraiser

The Dearborn Garden Club hosted its annual fundraiser, Holly Berry Luncheon, on December 2, 2017 at the Dearborn Inn. Gratitude for each and every volunteer on committees making our 21st Holly Berry Brunch another huge success. We wrapped and assembled gifts, created beautiful bows and other artistic touches along with the ever important logging of donations and large sponsorships. Busy, though highly fulfilling work organizing the Holly Berry Brunch fundraiser.

The menu consisted of meatloaf and vegetables or a vegetarian meal of butternut squash, plus dessert. The luncheon was another huge success as we had 464 guests.

Great Fun at the Holly Berry Brunch

Garden Club of Dearborn organizes our annual Holly Berry Brunch fundraiser to fund numerous scholarships to University of Michigan – Dearborn and Henry Ford Community College students, internships and garden restoration at the Henry Ford Estate, and landscaping projects at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, Environmental Interpretive Center at the University of Michigan – Dearborn and other local schools. The club also provides intra-club scholarships for members attending the Fall Conservation Conference, Flower Show School, and the Gardening Study Course and Landscape Design School, where one can become an accredited judge. These people then bring their knowledge back to the club and the community.
