Ecke Ranch Plant Sale 2012 Raises $16K
for Community Resource Center
Ecke Ranch raised $16,000 for Community Resource Center (CRC) on April 14, 2012, making it the second-highest fundraising figure for the event. Hundreds of gardening aficionados arrived to shop for thousands of show-quality blooming plants at below-market prices, and the greenhouse was nearly empty by the time the event ended.
Ecke Ranch showcases thousands of plants each spring to regional buyers, and then donates the material to CRC for the sale. Plant lovers who come to the annual sale are treated to prime material at unbeatable prices, with many varieties not yet available at retail stores.
All proceeds go to CRC programs that provide vital food and shelter services for women, children, and families in crisis.
The plant sale at Ecke Ranch has raised over $90,000 for CRC since the event started in 2007. Paul Ecke III, owner and CEO of Ecke Ranch, along with his staff, worked his traditional all-day volunteer shift at the plant sale. “Giving back to the community is an important part of what we do here at the Ranch,” says Ecke. “This event supports much needed programs that change lives for the better in our community.” Nearly 100 volunteers from Ecke Ranch and the community made the event possible this year.
