Please join us on Tuesday, February 19, from 5 to 9 p.m., for a celebratory dinner, dazzling entertainment, silent and live auctions, and an intimate preview of the Garden Festival’s stunning display gardens.
The theme of this year’s party is “Mediterranean Dreams.” Guests will be treated to music and food from around this beautiful, sun-soaked region. Festive attire is encouraged!
All proceeds help fund environmental education, maintenance, and volunteerism at the Arboretum.
