We’ve paid all event costs and collected all of the pledged donations, and we are happy to announce that Pratt Nature Center will receive a $13,000 donation from the 17th Annual YardScapes Quad-Am Golf Classic!
We will make the official check presentation on Saturday, November 5th while we are at Pratt performing a property cleanup during YardScapes’ Annual Rake & Bake Fall Day of Service.
Our entire team would like to extend much gratitude to each and every one of our sponsors, donors, players, and volunteers who continue to make this event fun and successful each year!
“The results of philanthropy are always beyond calculation.”
-Mary Ritter Beard
On Saturday, November 5th, YardScapes staff, family, friends, and business associates will volunteer at YardScapes Fall Rake & Bake, our second annual day of service.
At this event, volunteers meet at YardScapes to check in, have some coffee and snacks, and receive their assignments for the morning. After hearing welcome remarks and the plan for the day from Shayne, team assignments are handed out and equipment loaded on to the trucks. We’ll organize for a quick group photo and, at 9:00AM sharp, everyone will head to their specified non-profit organization in New Milford to perform fall clean ups.
You will see individual teams on Main Street working at Nathan Taylor House, Village Center for the Arts, and St. John’s Episcopal Church. Two teams will also head out to Pratt Nature Center and The Children’s Center.
Afterwards, all volunteers are invited back to YardScapes headquarters for a lunchtime cookout and another round of thank-yous from Shayne!
