Britain’s Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), which forged a partnership with PHS during this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show, “Brilliant!”, has responded to our matching grant campaign with a $5,000 donation.
RHS President Sue Biggs sent a note to PHS President Drew Becher, saying, “We can’t stand by and watch our lovely fellow Horticultural Society in such awful and undeserved trouble.”
Talk about hands across the water. We offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to our generous partners at RHS for helping us make up the revenue shortfall from this year’s Show.
The $5,000 donation from the RHS takes us closer to the goal of matching another very generous gift—the $25,000 offered by Subaru, the Flower Show’s Premier Sponsor, if we can raise the matching funds. Our deadline is June 30, and we’re getting very close.
We thank all our loyal members and dear friends for their support. If you would like to make a contribution before the end of our fiscal year, June 30, please click here.
