Proceeds from the show accounted for more than 25% of the total contributed income for Lauritzen Gardens. The funds support operation and maintenance of the garden.
  • Great things happen when you bring people together. Our volunteers work as a team to create the vision of our chairs and committees. They are all dedicated to the same goal of supporting Lauritzen Gardens through the Antiques Show. Bonded by friendship, fun and philanthropy, they return year after year.
