  • Dreamscape Ticket Sales Support Urban Beautification

In the ten-year anniversary, 1,234 owners of Summit County businesses or residences entered to win a professionally designed front or back yard makeover valued at $10,000. Keep Akron Beautiful (KAB) grossed approximately $27,625 through ticket sales to support the 32 year-old public land beautification program, Flowerscape. This year, KAB raffle tickets were $25 each or five for $100. Tickets were sold at our five Vendor Partner retail locations: Dayton Nurseries, Inc., Donzell’s Flower and Garden Center, Graf Growers Garden Center, Suncrest Gardens, Paul’s Greenhouse.
