2021 Online Auction for Lake Wilderness Arboretum’s Hellebore Tea
March 10 @ 9:00 am - March 12 @ 9:00 pmFree to browse, but plan to bid on some of these great items!
The Lake Wilderness Arboretum is a beautiful 42-acre green space adjacent to Lake Wilderness Park in Maple Valley. It is managed and maintained by an all-volunteer Lake Wilderness Arboretum Foundation, a 501©3 organization. The Foundation is fiscally responsible for the arboretum. The operating budget is raised through several plant sales a year as well as grants, donations, memberships and other fundraising activities.
One annual fundraiser, the Hellebore Tea will not be able to happen in person again for this year. This event typically brings in $7-8,000 each year which goes directly to the annual budget to help maintain and develop the arboretum. To mitigate this income loss, as well as keeping our Tea attendees engaged, we are happy to announce an online auction for the whole community to participate in!
