Attend a Fundraising Event


Garden Luncheon

The Chester County Garden Luncheon began in the Spring of 2000 as a Saturday morning brunch. The board of directors commissioned Karene Zimmerman to chair this event as a venue for introducing more individuals to the work of Bridge of Hope Lancaster & Chester Counties in Chester County. The variety of public and exotic gardens in the Greater Philadelphia and Chester County area gave evidence of the popularity of gardening among area residence. The guest speakers shared picturesque photographs as well as tips for beautifying backyards for the gardening hobbyist. Early speakers included nationally known gardeners such as Joanna Reed, David Culp, as well as Longwood Gardens professionals. This event, currently hosted at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center, Malvern, PA, also features a gourmet meal along with a silent auction filled with plants and gardening décor.
