The Lake Country Garden Tour held in June has resulted in proceed donations to two local groups.

The host Lake Country Garden Club presented a cheque for $1,500 to the Lake Country Food Bank, and another for $900 to the Central Okanagan Boys and Girls Club.

Judy Poole, a garden club member, said this was the third garden tour, drawing attendance from people in Vernon to West Kelowna.

Poole said the club made similar donations last year to the same two organizations.

The Boys and Girls club donation was generated from a garden tour raffle, in which 13 artists donated a work of art in return for having their artistry on display at one of the garden tour participant home gardens.

Poole said the 45-member club holds two main events annually, the garden tour on the second Saturday in June and the plant sale on the second Saturday in May.

“We appreciate the support from the community to help make the donations possible,” said Poole.
