Thank you!

Thanks to your generous donations, the Auction raised over $13,000 to support the work of preserving and protecting the McLaughlin Garden & Homestead.

Can’t wait to see you all at some of our upcoming programming or back next year for more fun bidding!

Community continues to grow at the Garden, thanks to you!


Thank you so much for your generosity!

Last Chance Online!

Online bidding will close at 12:00pm (noon) EST tomorrow – Friday, August 23rd!

If you cannot attend the auction, but would like to register a maximum bid to be represented at the live auction, please call, email or come by the Garden to speak with Stephanie. (E.g. You really want the Restored Botanical Print, but your Maximum is $100, we will bid for you until the live auction surpasses your maximum, or you could get the print for $75 as the top bidder).
