Changes to Ladies’ Night (Benefit for Project Self-Sufficiency)

After many years of building our Ladies’ Night fundraiser for Project Self-Sufficiency, we have decided to switch gears in 2016.  While the old model proved to be a very fun community event, it did not consistently reach our internal goals and expectations as a fundraising model.  This year, we will in essence be splitting the event into two separate events in order to maximize our donation potential.  On Thursday, June 16th we will kick off our Rock Garden Concert Series with a benefit concert for Project Self-Sufficiency featuring local music legend Liz Barnez.  This is a ticketed event with 50% of ticket sales going to Project Self-Sufficiency in addition to 100% of the event’s beer and wine sales.  Several elements from last year’s Ladies’ Night event will be incorporated into this festival atmosphere and we plan on having more fun than ever!

Fort Collins Nursery will be closed for shopping during the concert hours from 6:00-8:30pm.  We realize many of you coordinate your seasonal shopping with the Ladies’ Night event in order to support this wonderful non-profit.  This year we have marked Saturday, June 18th as Project Self-Sufficiency Saturday, and a percentage of our sales for the day will be donated to Project Self-Sufficiency in lieu of Ladies Night sales.

We apologize to our loyal Ladies’ Night participants and hope you will join us for the exciting next chapter in support of our friends at Project Self-Sufficiency.
