ATLANTA (February 7, 2005) – Sutherland Asbill & Brennan is pleased to announce that it is a sponsor of the 2005 Southeastern Flower Show, to take place March 2-6, 2005, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.
In continuing its long-standing tradition of community involvement, the firm has several strong ties to this year's Show. Sutherland's Of Counsel Louise Adams has launched a dual career following her passion of developing and facilitating healing gardens, and consulting on the gardens' therapeutic aspects. Louise recently became involved in the need for a healing garden at Emory's Winship Cancer Institute.
Each year, the Show presents a gift, called the Legacy Garden, to a selected organization in the Atlanta community in need of a garden area to meet the program objectives of their organization. The gift consists of a donation of plant material, as well as volunteers to help install the garden. Louise presented a proposal to the Show's Board of Trustees and Executive Committee for the healing garden at the Winship Cancer Institute to be awarded the 2005 Legacy Garden. Her proposal was accepted, and she will continue to be instrumental in fundraising for the garden at Winship Cancer Institute. In addition, Louise will be at this year's Show talking to others about the therapeutic value of healing gardens.
Ranked among the top three horticultural shows in the nation, The Southeastern Flower Show is an independent, volunteer, non-profit organization that is the premier gardening and horticultural event in the Southeast and a major cultural event for Atlanta. The Show promotes conservation and awareness of our natural environment through education, horticultural excellence, and artistic expression. The theme for the 2005 Show is "English Gardens for Southern Lifestyles."
