The Huntsville Botanical Garden will host the second annual Garden Soirée presented by PNC on Sept. 13. The event will raise nearly $100,000 to support the mission of the Garden.
“The Garden Soirée is unlike any other event that we host at the Garden,” said Annette Alexander, the Garden’s vice president of advancement. “Guests have the unique opportunity to share an elegant evening out in the Garden, under the stars, all while supporting the work that we do. It really is an enchanting and meaningful experience.”
The Garden Soirée brings guests outside into the Garden for cocktails, a three-course dinner by James Boyce and a live auction. All proceeds from the Garden Soirée support the work of the Garden’s mission to connect people to plants in order to create a healthier quality of life for the region.
“After a successful inaugural event in 2021, we are very excited for the second year of the Garden Soirée,” said Sue Wagner, chief executive officer of the Garden. “This event helps make possible our efforts in STEM education, plant conservation, visitor experiences and more. It is our chance to share the work we are doing with the community and invite them to get involved in an authentic, impactful way.”
Tickets for the Garden Soirée are available but limited. Reservations can be made until Sept. 6 at hsvbg.org/gardensoiree/.
