[ARCHIVED] Third Annual Downtown Garden Contest To Help Support Geneva Beautification Committee

Tour des Fleurs Garden Contest
People who love our downtown flowers can now cast their vote for their favorite garden as part of the Geneva Beautification Committee’s Tour des Fleurs contest.

Six gardens are featured in the second annual contest/fundraiser that will run through Thursday, Aug. 31. Garden photographs, a map and more information can be found online. Participating downtown gardens also are marked with signage.

People can vote for their favorite Tour des Fleurs garden in the form of a donation; each dollar donated counts as one vote. There are three options to submit your entry:

  • Visit the contest webpage and click the garden’s PayPal “donate” button;
  • Drop off the donation ballot (available on the contest webpage) along with a check or cash at Geneva City Hall; or
  • Mail your donation check along with the ballot to the Geneva Beautification Committee, Attn: Sherri Weitl, Geneva City Hall, 22 S. First St., Geneva, IL 60134.

Voting for multiple gardens is encouraged, and the winning entry will receive a trophy.

The Geneva Beautification Committee consists of organizations, businesses, families and volunteers that adopt and maintain planting beds and flower boxes throughout the City’s central business district.

Questions about the Tour des Fleurs contest can be directed to Beautification Committee co-Chair Sherri Weitl at 630-232-7494.
