Ladies and gentlemen, the Third Annual South Philly Garden Tour numbers have been crunched, and we've got a whole lot of exciting news to share. We'll let the numbers speak for themselves:

    • $9,605 raised¬†
    • 171 tickets sold
    • 26 sponsors
    • 16 gardens
    • 8 new member-households (welcome, Jon; Abbe and Steve; Greg and Tami; Paul and Kathy; Francesca, Stephen and Josie; Kimiko; Maggie and David; and Lindsay and Seth!)
    • and, last but not least, 1 incredible day in the sunshine with our neighbors, friends and community members, moving swiftly toward our goal of opening our member-owned grocery store in South Philly!

The money we raised on Saturday will go toward ongoing costs, site analysis and keeping our equity costs in reserve for the store itself.

Thanks so much to everyone who helped make this year's Garden Tour such an incredible success
