ACWL-Nuveen Summer Fundraiser: Garden Art Adventure

Mark your calendars and keep Saturday July 24th from 1 – 5pm free – you will not want to miss ACWL-Nuveen’s 2021 Fundraiser - GARDEN ART ADVENTURE, An Eclectic Experience. ACWL-Nuveen’s Fundraising mastermind, Alice Gambel says, “This will NOT be your typical garden tour - it is SO much more!” Alice and the ACWL-Nuveen Fundraising Committee started planning this event during COVID, so their goal was to, “provide a safe outdoor event that got people out of their houses and back in the community celebrating the arts”

Purchasing a ticket for $20 will give you access to nine unique private gardens around White Lake each hosting a mini artistic experience. The nine garden hosts have been enthusiastically planning for this event and have a line-up of gorgeous plants, artists on-site demonstrating their talent, art activities for the whole family and opportunities to buy garden art. There really is something for everyone and children/students, when accompanied by a ticketed adult, are admitted free!

Once you purchase your ticket you will receive a brochure with information about each of the nine gardens and what each site has to offer. Purchasing a ticket ahead of time will allow you to preview the sites and plan your route. Since the nine sites are spread out around White Lake it might be challenging to get to all of the gardens in the four-hour time period, some of the gardens may entice you to linger longer! If you are unable to attend this event, we hope you will consider purchasing tickets to share with friends, neighbors, or family members. This would boost our fundraising efforts and give more people the opportunity to see what the ACWL-Nuveen has to offer.

To preview information about this event, the featured gardens, and to purchase tickets online go to: or stop by the ACWL-Nuveen Center at 106 E. Colby in Whitehall. You will also be able to purchase your tickets at your first garden stop the day of the event as all sites will be selling tickets and have event information.

There is also the opportunity to be a GARDEN ART ADVENTURE sponsor. With a sponsorship of $100 or more, you will receive tickets plus recognition in the program as a garden sponsor. Sponsorships are available until July 10. Call 231-893-2524 or stop by ACWL-Nuveen for more information.

This event will take place even if it rains, so bring an umbrella. Artist works, garden art items, and in some cases, snacks will be available for purchase so please bring cash or a checkbook. We would hate for you to miss out on that one-of-a-kind piece of art for your home or garden!

We have missed seeing so many of you the past few months, so we hope that this outdoor event provides an opportunity for us to come together, enjoy the beauty of nature and celebrate the arts!
