Magic in the Moonlight

Presented by Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust

Margo DuBos and Juli Miller Hart are honored and extremely excited to be chairing the 2017 Magic in the Moonlight on Friday, October 13th.  Under the majestic oaks and the twinkling lights, they will host an elegant al fresco dinner with music and champagne. 

In celebration of the city’s 300th anniversary, world-reknown Chef John Folse will recreate the historical banquet given by Prince de Condé in honor of King Louis XIV at Chateau de Chantilly in Chantilly, France.  This four course dinner will be presented in honor of the Duke of Orléans.

To engage the next generation of supporters, there will be a ‘party within a party’ for the 45 and under crowd – the Moonlighters.  This group will also enjoy a cocktail hour, followed by dinner and then everyone is invited to stay for dancing!  Visit this link for additional information and tickets. Moonlighters tickets are only available online at this link

This year’s event is presented by the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust, an incredible supporter of the garden and its growth.  We hope you too will consider being a parton of this very special event.

We look forward to seeing you under the moonlight on October 13th!
