JC Raulston Arboretum announces Gala in the Garden


On May 4, 2008, from 4 to 7 p.m., the JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State University will once again hold its annual Gala in the Garden.

"Many will come in festive hats, others in their finest garden party attire; while others will be too focused to care as they bee-line to the botanicals to see what was donated for this year's event," said Dr. Dennis Werner, Arboretum director. "The Gala in the Garden at the JC Raulston Arboretum draws the diverse gardening community that surrounds the arboretum and beyond."

Enjoy music by the Southern String Band, gourmet hors d'oeuvres including a special dessert reception and bid on a variety of unique plants and other special items in the silent auction.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the JC Raulston Arboretum, a working research and teaching garden of NC State University.

Tickets are $60. To become a corporate sponsor or to purchase tickets, contact Barbara Kennedy at 919-513-7004 or barbara_kennedy@ncsu.edu. For more information about the JC Raulston Arboretum please visit http://www.ncsu.edu/jcraulstonarboretum/
