The Fifth Annual Suds & Buds Party was held at the Norfolk Botanical Garden on Friday, May 17, 2019. About 600 people enjoyed a casual garden party with the roses in full bloom. Guests enjoyed a wide variety of food with nineteen local restaurants/food trucks, craft beer and wine, and music provided by Lewis McGhee.
The profits from Suds and Buds benefited three different charities: Norfolk Botanical Garden, Norfolk Rotary Charities and our third partner this year, Lee’s Friends. Based in Norfolk, Lee’s Friends was established to help those living with cancer forty years ago. We were delighted to help support Lee’s Friends. Norfolk Rotary Charities supports the charitable efforts of the Rotary Club of Norfolk. This past year, we have distributed about $50,000 to various non-profits.
We thank our sponsors and our partners for their support of Suds & Buds. We are looking forward to hosting Suds & Buds next year.  We hope you will join us.
