Members of the German Village Society Board of Trustees were literally popping the champagne corks over this year’s Haus und Garten Tour.
Trustees at their July 14 meeting passed around the bubbly and desserts to celebrate surpassing the 2014 goal by nearly $20,000.
Tanya Rutner, chief producing officer for Raising Green Productions, which helps the Society raise funds for various events, said the society had set a goal of $216,000 but hauled in an estimated $234,000.
Tour officials were quick to point out the ledger has not been completely reconciled, so the figures are preliminary.
