Twilight in the Garden
Don't miss the virtual soirée of the season.
Twilight in the Garden is the annual gala to benefit Bartram’s Garden and the year’s largest fundraiser. Join us this fall in honoring State Representative Joanna McClinton and Paul W. Meyer, the recently retired F. Otto Haas Executive Director of the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania, for their commitment to community and natural spaces.
When? October 2, 2020 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM
What? The evening will feature festive cocktail-mixing demo led by Philly Mag Food Editor Alex Tewfik; live panel moderated by Sara Lomax-Reese, President of WURD Radio; lively auction featuring local artwork and exclusive experiences; and Bartram Boxes containing snacks and garden-themed goodies for guests to enjoy at home.
Why? Each year Bartram’s Garden welcomes 100,000 visitors, including 9,000 children who engage in hands-on learning. Bartram’s Garden is committed to empowering local youth, uplifting community voices, and providing a safe green space that facilitates growth, healing, and inspiration.
