McLaughlin is calling! Get ready for some exciting times ahead as you make a big difference in our future.
As we bid farewell to a challenging year, the McLaughlin Garden & Homestead’s 2020 Online Auction is a wonderful opportunity for you to make an impact on our beloved Garden.
As you know, The McLaughlin Garden made the difficult decision to cancel all of our summer events and programs. While we remained committed to keeping the Garden gates open throughout the summer, we missed being able to host Garden supporters and community members at our signature events like the Wildflower Celebration, Lilac Festival, Garden Illuminated, and the Jack O’Lantern Spectacular. The revenue generated from these popular community events along with visitor box donations and gift shop sales is significant, and without this income the McLaughlin Garden is facing a serious budget shortfall for the year.
Please help us to bridge our budget shortfall by bidding high and bidding often. Your generosity is critical to the future of the Garden, and we are extremely grateful for your support.
Online bidding will open on Friday, November 27 for the 2020 auction catalog!
