Garden tour was a huge success

The day of May 4 marked the 23rd annual Pence Gallery Garden Tour and it was absolutely stunning. We are so grateful to the community for supporting this annual celebration of Davis gardens. Garden owners Jeff and Mary Nicholson, Jim Bruner, Bill and Nori Reinert, Bob and Tamre Burns, Borg and Joyce Halle, and Warren Roberts and Richard Naval were most generous in allowing our guests to stroll through their beautiful gardens.

Thanks to our faithful sponsors: Tandem Properties, Marrone Bio Innovations, Carbahal & Company, Blakes’s Heating and Air, Davis Ace Hardware, MAK Design + Build, Cable Car Wash, Garrett Landscape Construction, First Northern Bank, First Street Real Estate, Entercom Multi-Media Marketing Solutions, Matt Dolcini (Coldwell Banker D.A.R.E.), Beyond the Garden Gate, Yvonne Clinton, State Senator Lois Wolk, Henry and Kathy Thornhill, Mark and Ginni Davis, Chris Corbett Design, Wayne Schrader, O.D., Riverview Consulting, Inc., Mary Brooks, Dick and Joy Dorf, John and Christine Bruhn, Morse Remodeling Inc., and Jacqueline Gilardi.

Many thanks to the artists who painted in the gardens: LaVille Logan, Lauren Brandy, Pete Scully, Rebecca Ryland, Ari Targownik, Debbie Gualco, and Natalie MacKenzie for weaving. The paintings are on display upstairs at the Pence through July 2 at 212 D St.

Redwood Barn, Newsbeat and Beyond the Garden were again very supportive in selling program tickets. Many contributors to the Silent Auction provided terrific items. Bob Dunning of the Enterprise wrote a great article. We thank the 100+ people who volunteered, both at the event, and during the many months before. We thank those who worked many hours with sponsors and silent auction preparation and refreshments: Mary Leachman, Carol Smith, Marge Dolcini, Pat Quinn and Bonnie Lam, Sharon Rose and Barbara Smith-Vaughn. The participating Master Gardeners and the UC Davis Prytanean Women’s Honor Society deserve a special round of applause. Proceeds from this fundraiser enable the Pence Gallery, a non-profit organization privately funded and member supported, to continue to provide thought-provoking art exhibits and education programs for our community. Thank you Davis!
