- VMGA Silent Auction Challenge
VMGA President Christy Brennan has asked her home unit, the Hanover Master Gardeners, to donate a gift basket of Hanover products for the 2015 Master Gardener College Silent Auction. Local products are such a great idea that VMGA would like to challenge all Master Gardener units/associations to donate local items or prepare a basket of local items for the auction! The unit or group that submits the basket that results in the largest purchase price will receive special recognition from VMGA as winners of the challenge. Individuals are welcome to accept this challenge also!
Auction items are important to the success of this very popular event at MG College. VMGA asks that you contribute plants, gardening tools and accessories, garden art, pots/crocks/planters and goody baskets of gardening or botanical items. Consumable items are also popular!
Please use the attached form to submit your donations, emailing to email@example.com or simply include all the needed information in the body of an email. All funds from the auction go directly to the State Coordinator Endowment. Thanks so much for your support!
- VMGA to Match Endowment Donations
President Christy Brennan has issued a challenge to all MGs and local associations for donations to the State Coordinator Endowment. VMGA will match all cash donations made between May 1 and August 31, up to $6,000. Cash donations increase earned income which will enable a very important initiative – to be unveiled at MG College. Double the importance of your donation; visit the Endowment page and contribute today!
