For those needing an idea for hard-to-buy-for friends or family members this holiday season, City of Gardens has the perfect gift. City of Gardens once again is offering a special holiday promotion of its Buy a Basket sponsorship program. For a donation of $125, purchasers will receive a personalized Sponsorship Certificate to give gift recipients, along with a certificate for a box of Godiva chocolates, compliments of Crimson Ridge.
Buy a Basket sponsorships help pay for the cost of planting, hanging, and maintaining flower baskets in downtown Rockford and surrounding neighborhoods from May through October. The program has grown from 18 experimental baskets to nearly 150 baskets since the program began in 1999.
The Godiva Chocolate/Hanging Basket promotion ends Jan. 17, 2004.
