Go Team Go!

6th Annual 5k Run/Walk

Saturday, October 1

The RCGC team is participating again this year in the George Eastman House Photo Finish 5K Run/Walk event. Last year our team knocked it out of the park by surpassing our goal of $5000 – a nice boost to our education programs, library and garden budget. This year we’ve set our goal at $6000.

We hope you’ll help us achieve our goal. To join the RCGC team or make a donation, click here for the event website, or call us at (585) 473-5130. Thank you, we appreciate your support!

Warner Castle Soirée

5:30-7 pm


Join us for the ‘magic hour’ here at Warner Castle for refreshments and tours of our elegant home and its grounds, with two knowledgeable guides who can answer all your questions about this historic property. The rehabilitated gardens have matured nicely and we can’t wait to show them off! For more information or to register online, visit our webpage.
