All ticket sale proceeds will be used to fund Keep Akron Beautiful’s Flowerscape Program. The program has 34 Flowerscape sites that are planted and maintained yearly using more than 35,000 flowers at different public property sites around the City of Akron. The Flowerscape Program promotes civic pride and landscape beauty while helping to improve the quality of life for everyone in our community!
The hard work and talent that goes into the beautification of our Flowerscape sites will be used in this year’s makeover as KAB Flowerscape Director Leah Heiser is the lead landscape designer for the 2017 Dreamscape Raffle. This marks the first time a Flowerscape director has taken on the role! Leah’s background, expertise, and eye for beautification will be a tremendous asset to the makeover team and we can’t wait to see what they come up with!
The winning ticket will be drawn on Thursday June 8, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at Alexander Park on West Market Street. In addition to the grand prize ticket, there will be three runner-up prizes which include 4 yards of mulch or compost blown into landscaped beds by TerraScape, LTD and a basket of gardening supplies courtesy of Graf Growers Garden Center.
