The 28th annual event, the Garden’s largest benefit, will be held Saturday evening, September 26 on the Great Lawn in a large tented ballroom surrounded by several gigantic bronze sculptures by British artist Henry Moore on display in the current exhibition, Moore in America. The expansion is funded by a New Seasons Capital Campaign that has raised more than $45 million under the leadership of Jane and Dameron Black, this year’s honorary ball chairs.
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. with cocktails in the Levy Parterre, followed by a three-course dinner under the tent. Tony Conway’s full service catering company A Legendary Event will provide the menu again this year under the direction of Executive Chef Lincoln Stevens. Stevens’ menu last year featured lemon poached shrimp, petite demitasse of heirloom tomato gazpacho and Parmesan basil tuile to start; horseradish-crusted grouper and Kobe steak, smoked gouda and goat cheese mornay, truffled gremolata risotto and saffron-braised squash and red carrots as the main entree; and ended with a pomegranate mousse dome for the ladies and a milk chocolate mousse tart for the gentlemen. Multiple courses of sweet & savory haute cuisine are slated for this year’s menu. “This year is sure to top last year’s dinner working with Honorary Gala Chairs Jane and Dameron Black,” states Conway.
Drawing more than 450 guests annually, the Garden of Eden Ball supports the Garden’s mission to develop and maintain plant collections for display, education, conservation and enjoyment. For ticket information, contact Jennifer Wyrick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
