Portland, OR. Over 300 supporters enjoyed the ambience of the The Portland Nursery for the Impact NW Garden Party. The benefit on September 24th celebrated the nonprofit’s 50th Anniversary and was an opportunity for community leaders to strengthen Impact NW’s mission of helping people prosper through a community of support. The event raised $111,000. Dennis Peck and Marcia Westcott Peck, garden columnists for The Oregonian visited with Liz Burns and Andy Nelson of Impact NW. Marcia, an acclaimed garden designer was a judge for a Garden Container contest. Local gardeners and nurseries submitted garden containers and the winning container was auctioned off to raise money for Impact NW.
