PLANTZ Donates Event Plants to One of Tampa’s Gems, the Tampa Garden Club, for its Largest Fundraiser

February 24, 2014

PLANTZ continues to show its dedication to the Tampa Bay Community through its generous donations.

The Tampa Garden Club held its largest annual fundraiser For The Love of a Garden Gala.  This event is the Garden Club’s main fundraiser, which will in part go to support efforts in building the “Reflection Garden,” at Metropolitan Ministries.
The theme of the event was a reflection of the 1940’s, when friends gathered to socialize at featured hotel ballrooms such as the “The Palm Room”.  In order to transform the Garden Club into “The Palm Room” for a night, Darby Miller, the event chairperson, called on Tampa Bay’s premiere plant company to help with the transformation.


Steve Stanford, the president of PLANTZ, and his team got to work identifying the right species of palm trees and the perfect placement to enhance the overall experience.  “The palm trees transformed the room, while keeping with the theme of the event; the beautiful trees and plants were 90% of the decorations for the event,” said Darby.

“When I see a beautiful venue like the Tampa Garden Club, it makes it easy to provide just the right touch of green to enhance the theme,” said Steve Stanford.

“Their team of professionals made decorating easy and seamless. You barely know that the team was there – the plants just appeared, and the next day disappeared without us having to do anything,” said Darby.

PLANTZ is proud to be able to help local treasures like the Tampa Garden Club, and truly honored to be chosen to donate their services.
