Gilda’s Club Gnome Garden at Canada Blooms
When you visit Canada Blooms in March, make sure to look for Gilda’s (Club) Gnome Garden.
20 adorable gnomes, painted by local celebrities and artists, will be planted in the garden, and ready for bidding on in a silent auction. Money raised from the auction will go to Gilda’s Club of Greater Toronto, an organization that supports people who are living with cancer, and their families. Gilda’s Club was named and developed in honour of Gilda Radner, the actor and comedian and one of the originators of Saturday Night Live.
Here is a sneak peek of some of the gnomes that will be up for grabs.
