What is Rose Garden?
Rose Garden is the Daughters of the Nile Foundation’s official Supreme Session fundraiser. Rose Garden is also a reminder to honor and keep in memory those special people who “Made a Difference” in your life. The best part is, you don’t have to attend Supreme Session at Niagara Falls to participate. In fact, you don’t even have to be a member of the Daughters of the Nile! For just $5, Daughters of the Nile Members, parents, spouses, friends and supporters can give a Rose to the Daughter of the Nile Member(s) they love and care for. These gifts not only create a spectacular Rose Garden at Supreme Session, but they are also an investment to further the purposes of the Daughters of the Nile Foundation to ensure that the Shriners Hospitals for Children® have the funds to continue to offer medical treatment, educational support, research and care for the children without placing a burden on the families of the patients.
When you give a rose, you not only honor someone, but you also impact the medical care that the children receive at the Shriners Hospitals for Children®. When you share your thoughtfulness with your Daughters of the Nile family, you empower the Foundation to continue to make “Million Dollar” donations to Shriners Hospitals for Children® and help make a difference in a child’s life.
How it Works
For just $5, you may purchase a rose in celebration, honor or memory of a special person. Whether or not attending Supreme Session, your honoree will receive an email letting her know you gave her a Rose and her name will be added to the Rose Garden display at Niagara Falls! The Rose Garden will bloom for all to see at Supreme Session 2017 at Niagara Falls.
When giving a Rose, you may share a Rose Garden image in a personal email or on social media! During your donation confirmation, by downloading the Rose Garden Donor Image and pasting it into an email to your Daughter of the Nile member, your parents, spouse, friends and supporters or share it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you have shared the Nile Love!

Raising the Stakes
Temple competitions are in place this year. To participate, donors simply enter the Temple Name and Number you wish to support when purchasing Rose(s) online or during a Supreme Session. The top contributing Temples to the Rose Garden will be announced at the conclusion of Supreme Session 2017.
How the Seed Was Planted
Thanks to the generosity of Daughters of the Nile Members, in its inaugural year of 2016 the Rose Garden contributions totaled $2,700. This year, parents, spouses, family members and friends can join in the fun and purchase Roses!
Not only are White Roses used as Daughters of the Nile flower, they also stand for so much more! In early tradition, the White Rose was used as a symbol of true love and is also associated with honor and reverence. This symbol exemplifies the love and honor of donors who make a donation to thank the special people in their life. If every Daughter of the Nile gives just one Rose, we would raise more than $125,000. Multiply that for every parent, spouse, or friend who buys a Rose and you can imagine the impact! Thank you for helping create a spectacular display of love, thoughtfulness and Daughters of the Nile friendship this year.
