This year, The New Orleans Botanical Garden Foundation will honor the Garden Study Club of New Orleans for their sustained support of the garden throughout the years at their annual “Magic in the Moonlight” event. The intimate al fresco dinner fête held on the grounds of the New Orleans Botanical Garden, hosted by President Anne Abbott and Genevieve Munson Trimble Director Paul M. Soniat, incorporates the natural beauty of the space and twinkling lights to create a truly enchanting atmosphere.

Only in its third year, the magical event chaired by Dana Hansel, David Waller and Marlene Donovan is already at maximum seating capacity. This year’s gathering will feature chef Aaron Burgau of Patois who will prepare a four-course seated dinner, and Dr. Michael White will provide entertainment throughout the evening. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on fabulous auction items such as a villa stay in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and an original painting by Cleland Powell.

The funds raised from this year’s event will be directed to the construction of a new entrance to the Botanical Garden and Storyland. The organization aims to begin the initial phases of the project in 2014.

For more information and to purchase tickets, call 483-9386.
