May 17th was the date of Hampton Roads' best casual garden party, Suds & Buds, held for the fifth consecutive year at the Norfolk Botanical Garden.  Net profits of $27,000 were distributed equally to three charities: Lee’s Friends, Norfolk Botanical Garden, and Norfolk Rotary Charities.
 
We were delighted to partner with Lee’s Friends, a charity that provides supportive services to people and their families who are living with cancer.
