Twilight in the Garden: A Benefit for Bartram’s Garden

October 6, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Twilight in the Garden is at capacity. If you would like to register for the waiting list, please contact Caroline Winschel at or 215 729 5281 x104.

Twilight in the Garden is the annual gala to benefit Bartram’s Garden and the year’s largest fundraiser. Join us this fall to honor Bill Thomas, executive director of Chanticleer, for his extraordinary contributions to public gardens and to celebrate the newly restored Bartram House and Ann Bartram Carr Garden.

The evening will include cocktails in the historic garden, guided tours, riverboat cruises, a seasonal dinner under the stars, and a lively auction.

All proceeds from the event support year-round programming for more than 10,000 local children and families. A portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible.
