2020 Garden Party Postponed


Because of the national effort to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we find ourselves in a time of great uncertainty.  We want you to know we are monitoring the rapidly evolving situation closely and working with the CDC, state agencies and local health departments to contain the spread of the virus. 

In light of these efforts, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our “Middlebrook Plantation Garden Party” event, benefiting Covenant Health HomeCare and Hospice.  We are hopeful the event, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, June 6,2020, can be rescheduled in June of 2021.

While this is a critically important fundraiser for the Covenant Health HomeCare and Hospice, your health and that of the community is our primary concern.  As we move forward during this unprecedented period, we will be sure to keep you updated on any and all future planning.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Fort Sanders Foundation at (865) 531-5208.  We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters.
