On Saturday June 8th, 2019, United Way CKL will host a Garden Party Fundraiser: an event to celebrate the grand opening of Edwin Binney’s Community Garden on Crayola Canada’s Property. The event will take place at both Fleming College’s Auks Lodge and the brand new Edwin Binney’s Community Garden (weather permitting).
Guests are invited to attend the cocktail and speeches portion of the event at Fleming College’s Auks Lodge from 1pm until 3pm, where special guests from Crayola Canada, Fleming College and United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes will speak about the creation of this innovative Food Security venture. After speeches, guests will be invited to peruse the community tables, purchase Edwin Binney’s Community Garden merchandise, indulge in hors d’oeuvres and enjoy the cash bar. Just a quick walk down the block will land guests at Edwin Binney’s Community Garden for the ribbon cutting portion of the event.
Upon arrival at Edwin Binney’s Community Garden at 3pm, United Way CKL will recognize grant supporters including Ontario Trillium Foundation, Lindsay C.H.E.S.T Fund, IHeart Community Fund, and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. Guests will convene to witness the grand unveiling of the Days Inn and Suites Bee Hotel and the Mural created through the Youth Mural Competition. Prizes for the Mural Competition will be awarded, then attendees will be invited to explore the gardens at their leisure.
