2015 Winners!
Thank you to all who participated in the Big Rock Garden Tour on Saturday, July 18.  It was a beautiful summer day and $1,100 was raised for the Foothills Country Hospice.  Thank you to the homeowners who opened up their gardens for the tour.  Without their generosity, this tour would not be possible.  
 

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 winners of the people's choice awards were:
#1 Mario's on Cimmaron Estates Way 
#2 Chipera's on Crystalridge Rise 
 
Congratulations!
2014 Winners!
