2016 Fairchild Gala In The Garden

2016 Fairchild Gala In The GardenSaturday, February 6, 6:30pm-11:30pm – Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables

The 23rd Annual Gala in the Garden at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden celebrated individuals who generously support Fairchild’s growth and the advancements made throughout the year. Co-chaired by Swanee DiMare and Frances Sevilla-Sacasa, proceeds benefit Fairchild’s programs in education, conservation science, and horticulture. Notable philanthropists from South Florida and beyond get together for an evening of unmatched beauty, delicious food, dancing, and charity.

This year’s theme was “Starry, Starry Night.” The evening started with a cocktail reception under the stars and an enhanced silent auction featuring luxury getaways and world-class experiences. The evening continued in the Lakeside Marquee, bathed in blue with lights adorning the ceiling like stars. Le Basque’s food and décor artists prepared a gourmet dinner and the Soul Survivors Band played the lively tunes, all culminating in an unforgettable evening of tropical beauty.
