Hello Friends,

When we began our centennial year, we wanted to celebrate it with the community we love. To do so, we instituted our $10,000 gift card giveaway with plans to provide 100, $100 gift cards to our amazing customers.
For understandable reasons, while we want to honor the many generations of Van Wilgen’s who have made our community garden center possible, the contest-style vibe of our original give away, just doesn’t feel right given the current climate.
This is what we are planning on doing, and we hope you support the idea:
Don’t worry, we’re still planning to give out $10,000 worth of gift cards to our community, but we’d like to set some of those gift cards aside for non-profits or those in need, and we’d like you to help us!
When we draw our first winners, we will ask that winner to select a nursing home, healthcare worker, dedicated teacher, volunteer or other organization or community member that should be given a matching $100 gift card to brighten their day. It’s important to us to celebrate not only the customers we love but also those who are helping us all during this difficult time.

2020 is Van Wilgen’s 100th anniversary! In honor of this amazing milestone, we’re celebrating with special sales, special events and a $10,000 giveaway! To enter, visit a Van Wilgen’s location, and fill out an entry blank (no purchase necessary). Then, throughout the year, we’ll pull names from all of the entries, and 100 lucky winners will receive a $100 Van Wilgen’s Gift Card.
