Gala in the Garden, the annual “social event of the season,” arrives at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 6:30 p.m.
Now in its 20th year, the black-tie event is Fairchild’s major annual fundraiser, with all proceeds supporting programs in conservation science, education, horticulture and collection management. The theme of this year’s gala is “Botanical Tapestry” and the co-chairs are Swanee DiMare and Frances Sevilla Sacasa.
The event’s activities will ensure an elegant and enjoyable evening. The night begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction at the Shehan Visitor Center. Guests then proceed to the exquisitely lit and decorated Lakeside Marquee surrounded by a tropical paradise for an unforgettable night of first-class dining and dancing to the sounds of The Soul Survivors Orchestra.
The stunning décor and delectable dinner is provided by Le Basque, a premier catering company based in Miami. Courtesy cocktails are provided by Grey Goose Vodka, a gala sponsor.
Individual tickets start at $600, and tables for 10 can be reserved for $6,000. To purchase tickets, contact Susannah Shubin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 305-667-1651, ext. 3375.
