Fairchild’s 25th Annual GALA IN THE GARDEN
Set amid the dazzling array of tropical flowers and lush foliage, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden celebrated its annual gala
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, the historic botanical garden that is one of the premier conservation and education-based gardens in the world, celebrated its 25th Annual Gala in the Garden on Saturday, February 1. Set amid the dazzling array of tropical flowers and lush foliage of Fairchild Garden, the largest tropical botanic garden in the continental United States, it’s no wonder this breathtaking event is noted as one of the “Top Three Must Attend” galas by Miami Magazine.
Limited to only 400 exclusive guests, Gala in the Garden is the who’s who of South Florida philanthropists and community leaders. Each year, the lakeside venue is reimagined by a team of talented artists who create the glamorous décor and delicious cuisine. This black tie formal event began with a cocktail reception and silent auction in the Adam R. Rose and Peter R. McQuillan Arts Center, followed by a seated dinner overlooking Pandanus Lake.
Funds raised allow Fairchild Garden to continue its mission of exploring, expanding and conserving the world of tropical plants.
Gala in the Garden 2020 was chaired by Swanee DiMare and Frances Sevilla Sacasa. Notable guests included six-time Emmy award-winning TV news reporter and anchor, Laurie Jennings.
