2014 GARDEN TOUR CANCELLED
With California dry as a bone, VHS has decided to cancel the 9th annual Hidden Gardens of the Valley Tour. We feel strongly that our community responsibility goes beyond the immediate fundraising needs of the organization, and though the decision leaves a sizeable hole in our budget, it seems irresponsible to promote an event which encourages participating gardeners (as well as tour attendees) to excessive use of water during drought conditions. See the full news release.
Valley Humane Society’s Hidden Gardens of the Valley is a self-guided, rain-or-shine tour of ten beautiful private gardens throughout Pleasanton which provides attendees with creative ideas for their own yards while benefits VHS cats and dogs.
Make it a Wash
Community members are invited to help reduce the impact of this cancellation on rescued cats and dogs by making a donation to support VHS programs and services. Donors who contribute $25 or more will receive one complimentary copy of the 2014 Wine Country Critters calendar (while supplies last), and be entered in a drawing for a $100 Petco gift card*. Please make your online donation to help the animals today:
*Gift card drawing will take place on or around May 15. Donations made after that date will not be eligible for the drawing.
