Al fresco dining, crisp fall air and a golden moonrise over golden meadow grasses are promised when Adkins Arboretum hosts the sixth annual Magic in the Meadow gala, an enchanted evening to benefit the Arboretum’s education and conservation programs. A limited number of tickets are still available for this dazzling gala event on Sat., Sept. 28.
As twilight falls, guests will enjoy live jazz by Chestertown band B Natural, featuring Pres Harding on guitar and a special appearance by the incomparable Joe Holt on piano. Wine, cocktails and spectacular fresh fare by Magnolia Caterers will be served in the meadow, surrounded by the Arboretum’s 400 acres of majestic native gardens, wetlands, forests and streams.
The evening’s exciting live and silent auctions will offer incredible travel experiences, local vacation and dining packages, art, jewelry and much more. New to this year’s event is the “Best of Live” raffle. Only a few of the 100 tickets remain. One winner, whose name will be drawn during the event, will win one of the 11 unique and valuable live auction items, including trips to San Francisco, Washington State and the Canadian Rockies. Tickets are $100, and purchasers need not be present to win.
Recognizing the Arboretum’s important conservation mission, 27 regional and national corporate sponsors have lent their support to this year’s Magic in the Meadow.
