Coral Gables Garden Club’s As I See It Photography Competition Fundraiser Is Underway

Official Press Release of the Coral Gables Garden Club

The Coral Gables Garden Club raises funds to give back to the City of Coral Gables, its residents, and schools and has done many beautification projects over the last 98 years. The mission of the garden club is dedicated to educating our members, our youth, and the public in gardening, horticulture, environmental issues, community beautification, and the art of floral design.

Our 3rd annual nature photography contest has already begun, and submissions will be accepted until May 5th. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top 25 images. The Marlene Kerdyk Award is given to the overall best image and receives $1,000. The garden club is collaborating with the Coral Gables Museum. We will have an exhibition at the Coral Gables Museum for the top 25 images and the museum’s top 25 photos from their contest, Capture Coral Gables, from August 10th through October 1st.
