THE MISSION

The mission of The Garden Party Foundation (TGPF) is to provide trade school scholarships to underprivileged young adults. TGPF believes that the purpose of education is to teach students skills allowing them the opportunity to create their own self-sustainable life, which goes hand in hand with TGPF’s intention…to help one student at a time reach their dreams.

THE GOAL

The goal of The Garden Party event is to create a pleasant Sunday afternoon. Pleasing to the eye, the palate and for its charitable aspect – pleasing to the soul.

THE HISTORY

TGPF was founded by Sydney L. Ross and his wife, Elizabeth. The Garden Party event was initiated, and is maintained, by the J. Lewis Cooper Family and Elizabeth and Sydney L. Ross Foundation. For 10 years, TGPF has hosted an event, The Garden Party Southeast Michigan, comprised of fine wine, delicious food and classic cars with all proceeds benefiting charity. For the third year in a row, we are expanding to Northern Michigan and expecting nearly 300 guests attend, 20 restaurants to display their signature dishes and 60 different wines are served. Guests are encouraged to enjoy a pleasant afternoon and of course, display their classic car.
