Covenant Hospice is delighted to announce the 3rd Annual Covenant Hospice Garden Gala. The 2008 Garden Gala will be held on Saturday, September 20th at the National Guard Armory in Marianna. Guests will enjoy a whimsical evening as they wander serene garden paths, admire beautiful garden art, listen to lively entertainment, participate in silent & live auctions and dine on savory cuisine. This annual event is renowned for the hand painted benches and chairs that local artist design and fabricate. For the third year, Covenant Hospice has provided local artists with custom constructed wood garden furniture to be transformed into exquisite pieces of art. This year, artists had the choice of a bench, swing or Adirondack chair to transform into their canvas. The furniture was constructed by JCARC, under the leadership of Mr. Joe Shores. Tickets for the Garden Gala are available now for $40 per individual or $75 per couple.
