The Florabundance party on Thursday, February 20, was a huge success. Mitchell Hall was gloriously decked out in warm peach and citrus colors with beautiful flower arrangements on every table.
“The spirit of the event really stood out,” said Brian Vogt, CEO of Denver Botanic Gardens. “The organizing team tended to every detail, allowing the room to revel in a wonderful evening together. Once again and always, I am filled with gratitude for the Garden Club of Denver. You are the Gardens’ key champion and have been from the very beginning. Thank you!”
More than 150 guests attended the event and enjoyed cocktails appetizers and dinner provided by Catering By Design. The flowers were graciously donated by Martha Veldkamp and were sold at the end of the night to add to the total donation.
Not only did partygoers have a great time socializing, but they did some serious bidding too. About 135 items were up for bid. From garden treasures, to home treasures to trips and amazing experiences, there was something to everyone.
Garden Club of Denver expects to give a donation of $50,000 to the Denver Botanic Gardens.
“Kudos to a tremendous team, led by Mary Fowler. Bar Chadwick, Liza Grant, Janet Manning, Lise Woodard and Sarah Young. They did a fantastic job of finding lots of treasures for the silent auction,” said Missy Eliot, President of Garden Club of Denver.
