The Northwest Flower & Garden Show returns to the Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, in mid-February, 2015, and once again the Arboretum Foundation will kick off the show with its annual Opening Night Party & Auction. Guests will enjoy a fabulous evening of delicious food, wine bars, live music, and sparkling auctions, and the opportunity to view the beautiful display gardens at the Garden Show the day before it opens to the public—all while helping us raise important funds to support Washington Park Arboretum.
This year’s Garden Show (February 11 to 15) falls on the same week as St. Valentine’s Day, and the show theme will be “Romance Blossoms.” Our party will incorporate this theme—as will our annual garden display, which will be an interactive, love-themed homage to Azalea Way.
Ticket prices start at $175 (early bird). Tickets will go on sale in December 2014.
A Resplendent Auction
Each year, our party features a lavish silent and live auction filled with all manner of treasures—such as travel packages, dining and theater experiences, exclusive garden tours, hiking adventures, and wine tastings. Our auction procurement team works hard throughout the year to secure many fabulous donations from generous businesses, institutions, and private individuals.
Please donate: Donations to our auction are greatly appreciated. To make a gift, download and fill out our auction procurement form. For more information, email our Development and Events Coordinator Sheila Beer or call her at 206-325-4510.
