    Dinner & Silent Auction, September 20, 2014

    Annual Gala

    "The Glory of the Garden" Gala

    Our Annual Gala is a black-tie event on an early fall evening, in our River Farm gardens overlooking the Potomac. Our theme this year is derived from Rudyard Kipling’s poem, The Glory of the Garden, which celebrates every person’s ability to be a gardener, thus becoming a partner in its glorious results.

    Sumptuous food and wine, accompanied by silent auctions for vacation trips, one-of-a-kind garden events, and distinctive garden tools and decor, combine for a memorable night that supports the American Horticultural Society's outreach programs and stewardship of River Farm. Susie and Bruce Usrey of Monrovia are serving as Honorary Chairs.

    This evening of fine dining and jazz music will take place in the gardens of our River Farm headquarters on Saturday, September 20, 2014. 

    We invite you to come celebrate with us on Saturday, September 20. Ticket sales ended at noon on September 17. Our online auction of unique garden tours runs through October 26.

    With appreciation for our generous sponsors!
