Garden Center Services Gala

Since 1956, Garden Center Services has hosted our Annual Gala. What started as the Fashion Show & Luncheon imagined by the parents who started the agency, has now evolved into a grand Gala celebrating those we serve, our amazing staff, and supporters.  Each October, over 400 family, friends, and people we serve gathered for an evening of delicious food, auctions, raffles and joyous celebration at Gaelic Park in Oak Forest.

Projected to return in 2023

Holiday Bazaar

We work hard all year creating beautiful hand-made holiday gifts. On the first Friday of December we open up the State Road program building for our Annual Holiday Bazaar! Patrons enjoy punch and cookies, festive music & movies, while they browse our great selection of hand-made gifts.

On hold during COVID.
