The 2018 50th Garden Walk was a big success. The Munroe-Meyer Guild had 1,000 people tour the five gardens, and comments from the visitors were overwhelmingly positive. The favorite seemed to be the Elmwood garden, and the Omaha World-Herald featured the walk, with photos and a great article, in the Monday newspaper. Aside from the private homeowner gardens, people were just in awe of the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center’s Chihuly Sanctuary and thought Leslie’s Healing Garden was a great retreat for patients and families.
The Guild estimates that about $30,000 was raised, but a final figure will not be available until the Guild receives the proceeds from the Hy-Vee ticket sales. There were a record number of volunteers, and we wish to express our gratitude to everyone who helped. The OpPOURtunity Brew Coffee Cart was well received and a great outcome from the results of the proceeds of the 2017 Garden Walk. If you attended or volunteered, the Guild thanks you! Now we start looking for gardens for next year!
