Wayland Garden Club Contributes Centerpieces for Boston Fundraiser

Members of the Wayland Garden Club donated two centerpieces to an October 1st fundraiser, "Home Run for Homeless Women and Children", held at Fenway Park to benefit Health Care without Walls (formerly known as Women of Means). The non-profit organization provides free and compassionate medical care, education, and advocacy to homeless women and children in the greater Boston area. Centerpieces donated by various garden clubs adorned tables at the evening fundraiser. The centerpieces were also included in a silent auction.

Nancy Vona and Nancy Keith of the Wayland Garden Club created and donated one centerpiece of red roses, blue hydrangeas, delphinium and white lisianthus framed by boxwood. They chose the colors of the arrangement to match the Red Sox uniforms and to honor the setting of Fenway Park.

Cindi Jacobs of the Wayland Garden Club also created and donated one centerpiece which demonstrated how to be creative while working with a tight budget. Her centerpiece highlighted several shades of purple with a pop of yellow flowers flanked by cabbage and aromatic eucalyptus. The container was $3 from a local thrift store and with a little Tarn-X it shined beautifully! Flowers were from Trader Joe's. The total cost of the arrangement was $20.
