Weekend Gardener at Seaboard Ace Hardware!

Seaboard Ace Hardware will be joining several other Ace Hardware locations in North Carolina in the Holiday Round Up for Kids fundraiser.  Seaboard Ace will be utilizing the Round Up donation function at checkout to benefit Duke Children’s, adding to their annual support of the hospital through miracle buckets, calendars, and other endeavors throughout the year.  The Holiday Round Up fundraiser officially began on Friday, November 24th and will run through December 24th.

As part of the kick off of this fundraising endeavor, Seaboard Ace invited Duke Children’s representative Kelly Partner to participate in a special broadcast of The Weekend Gardener on News Radio 680 WPTF.  The Weekend Gardener broadcast live from Seaboard Ace on Saturday, November 25th – conducting their award-winning talk show designed to answer listener questions and give advice about all facets of gardening in North Carolina and beyond.
