Gala in the Gardens at Fairchild Botanical Gardens- February 2, 2013

The Gala in the Garden is Fairchild's annual black-tie event and largest fund-raiser. The Fairchild Gala attracts a "who’s who" of South Florida’s business and social worlds while showcasing the splendor, beauty and mission-based programs of the garden. All proceeds from the Gala in the Garden support Fairchild's programs in conservation science, education, horticulture and collection management.
         The evening commences with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the beautiful Italian mosaic of the Jean duPont Shehan Visitor Center with the eagerly-awaited silent auction running throughout the cocktail hour and evening. Guests will then proceed to a large lakeside marquis for a five-star dining experience and dancing to the music of the Soul Survivors. The Fairchild Gala captures the magic of beauty and elegance alongside a fun and enjoyable evening while raising significant funds for its mission specific programs.
        The Gala in the Garden is considered the "social event of the season," and as in previous years, will be limited to 400 guests to ensure an intimate and personal experience. Table and individual guest reservations are typically sold out by the Fall, so reserve your seats soon. Prices begin at $600 per person; tables for ten begin at $6,000. The Fairchild Gala also needs additional underwriting support.-- 6:30pm
