This July, the Big Rock Garden Tour raised $950.00 for the Foothills Country Hospice (a total of 95 tickets were sold). A special thank you to all of you who helped to find the gardens. A thank you also to Kayben Farms for donating 10 jars of blackcurrant jam and Chinook Honey for donating two jars of honey for our gifts to the homeowners.
Peoples' Choice Award
After touring the gardens, each ticket holder may vote for their favourite garden by writing the address on their ticket stub and dropping it in the ballot box at the last garden they visit. The Big Rock Garden Committee evaluates the ballots and determines the awards accordingly. The Big Rock Garden Committee awards prizes to all participants who make their garden available for the tour.
The winner of the People's Choice Award by a huge stretch (46% of the votes) was Susan from Cimarron Circle. 59 of the 95 ticket holders cast their ballots.
