    2016 Gala Program & Sponsors

    The 23rd Annual Gala Benefited River Farm

    Our online Gala program contains Dean Norton's gracious letter to the American Horticultural Society, as well as more information about our sponsors and the AHS.


    Celebrating the Gardens of Virginia: Enjoying the Beauty and Bounty of the Earth was the evening theme.

    Our Honored Guest was J. Dean Norton, Director of Horticulture at George Washington's Mount Vernon.

    Live music accompanied the cocktail reception and three-course dinner of sumptous food and wine.

    This online guide to the Silent Auction gives you details of the offerings. They ranged from vacation trips, to dazzling jewelry, distinctive garden decor, and one-of-a-kind garden events.

    Thank you for supporting the American Horticultural Society's outreach programs and stewardship of River Farm.
