Dreamscape Raffle

Dreamscape Update 2018                                           

Keep Akron Beautiful has decided, in conjunction with all 20 of their local vendor partners, to end the Dreamscape raffle with last year’s winning makeover won by Hollie Lerchbacher of Macedonia.


Rather than buy a ticket from which you may not win anything at all, interested parties can now bid on individual items they need at the organization’s Green The Scene event, or even from home through the auction site.


According to Green The Scene Event Co-Chairs Carol Haines and Kim Haws Falasco, so many people wanted specific vendor items that the CEO, Board and vendors decided all—nonprofit, donors and vendors—will benefit from this change. In addition, the vendors’ individual expertise would be better showcased.


Keep Akron Beautiful will be hosting their second annual Green The Scene event, at the Akron Art Museum on Wednesday August 29, 2018 from 5-8:30 p.m. This event will take the place of the Dreamscape fundraiser, raising funds for their public Flowerscape program.


Admission to the event will be $45 and will include an open bar and Swenson’s dinner. Items will be available for silent and live auction, including amazing prizes donated by some of the same Dreamscape Vendor Partners and their own Flowerscape crew. So you can still get the beautiful front or backyard of your dreams at Green The Scene!


The agency would like to thank all of the vendors who have made this raffle possible, for the last 14 years, including: Dayton Nurseries, Inc., Donzells Flower & Garden Center, Inc., Graf Growers Garden Center, Suncrest Gardens, Advanced Arboriculture, Cascade Lighting, Circle K, Graf’s Landscape & Design, Hitchcock Fleming & Associates, Inc., Main Street Gourmet,  R.G. Thomas Landscape & Design, Inc., Naragon Irrigation, Nick’s Landscaping of Ohio, LLC, Pam’s Perennial Plant Farm, KB Bio Energy, Inc., Star Printing Co. Inc., Tim’s Custom Electric, Wilson Plumbing & Heating, Inc., W.L. Tucker Supply, YES Press Printing Co., Blooming Designs, and Lewis Landscaping!


Keep Akron Beautiful would also like to thank all of the citizens and businesses who have purchased tickets throughout the last fourteen years, raising KAB a total of $295,180. By participating in the Dreamscape Raffle, you have given all of Akron the ability to be beautified through Flowerscapes. The funds from each Dreamscape raffle have been used to support Keep Akron Beautiful’s public land beautification program, Flowerscape.
