This year’s Garden Walk & Art Fair, sponsored by the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation, is expanding its horizons to include gardens beyond Fond du Lac to Lomira and Waupun.
The annual garden walk, slated from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, will feature six beautiful and inspiring gardens in these communities. The event is held rain or shine.
Tickets are available for $12 each at the following locations - Agnesian HealthCare Information Desk, Agnesian HealthCare Foundation, Waupun Memorial Hospital Information Desk, Haentze Floral and Wegner Office Supply - or at any garden the day of the event.
Garden walk participants will enjoy an art fair with unique items from talented area artists at 910 Main Street in Lomira. And, with an entry ticket on July 14, individuals can enjoy an ice cream cone at 50 percent off from Guth’s End of the Trail Candy Shoppe in Waupun.
This year’s Garden Walk & Art Fair will help raise money to help support the Community Care Fund, which assists the medical needs of the uninsured or underinsured.
“In keeping with the philosophy of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes and the mission of Agnesian HealthCare, we are committed to our responsibility of providing healthcare services to all persons, regardless of their ability to pay,” says Rita Meidam, Agnesian HealthCare Foundation executive director. “This commitment is a force for a healthier community.”
Once a completed Community Care Fund application is received, and eligibility requirements are met, the Community Care Fund can assist at no charge or at a discount for services that are medically necessary.
Garden walk organizers expect more than 500 visitors from all parts of Wisconsin who will have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature and the joy and inspiration from strolling well-manicured surroundings.
