World Pledges More Than $1 Billion to End Polio

With polio on the brink of eradication, nations from around the world and key donors pledged $1.3 billion to energize the global fight to end the paralyzing disease.

The historic pledges of new funds at the Rotary Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, will go toward drastically shrinking the $1.5 billion gap in the funding that the partners of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative say is needed to reduce polio cases to zero worldwide. Just five cases have been reported this year, the lowest number in history.

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, said ending polio would be one of the world’s greatest achievements.

Rotary International President John F. Germ announced that Rotary would increase its commitment and raise $50 million per year over the next three years. Rotary has raised more than $1.7 billion to fight the disease since 1985.

Sept 9 – Art in the Garden – Lincoln

Celebrate Purple Reign at the fifth annual Art in the Garden

Lincoln, Neb. – For the fifth year, Lincoln’s Sunken Gardens will provide the backdrop for a unique art showcase. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 9, more than 50 artists from the Noyes Art Gallery will display their work among the plantings at the Sunken Gardens.

This year’s Art in the Garden theme is “Purple Reign” because garden designers Steve Nosal and Alice Reed decided to honor rock musician Prince and his groundbreaking hit, Purple Rain, with the garden’s design.

The Noyes’ artists took the theme farther by imagining all things royal, including the fairy kingdom. So, this year’s Art in the Garden will offer some new elements including:

  • A Make-Your-Own-Flower-Crown booth.
  • A photo booth to document your royal headgear.
  • Food trucks to feast among the garden’s purple majesty.
  • A rain location, the Auld Center, at 1650 Memorial Drive.

Much of the artwork has been inspired by the gardens and nature, and it will include paintings, sculptures, photography, pottery, woodworking, stained glass, furniture, clothing, jewelry, mobiles and more. All the art is for sale, and the event supports the Sunken Gardens.

According to Nosal, an average of 25,000 new plants are added to the Sunken Gardens each year, in addition to the existing plants. It also takes more than 200 volunteers to complete the design, which is developed in three phases to clean the beds, prepare, and then plant them.

Likewise, the Art in the Garden event is volunteer powered. Noyes artists begin planning nearly a year in advance. Approximately 130 volunteers work to bring art of all kinds into the gardens, and the gardens provide a spectacular backdrop for art and performances by musicians and dancers.

Art in the Garden is made possible by the support of Party in the Parks, Lincoln Parks & Recreation, Great Western Bank and Ameritas. Admission to Art in the Garden is free with free parking available across the street at the Rose Garden. The Sunken Gardens are also totally accessible to those with mobility issues. In the event of rain, Art in the Garden will be held at the Auld Center.
