Gala in The Garden 2017

A record 600 guests attended San Diego Botanic Garden’s annual gala, titled “A Night in Nature.” Generous supporters contributed more than $300,000 toward the fund-a-need in support of the Dickinson Family Education Conservatory, virtually completing the $5.3 million campaign. An additional $200,000 was raised from sponsorships, ticket sales, and silent auction proceeds. Gala chair was Jim Ruecker, artistic director was René Van Rems, logistics chair was Sabrina Cadini, and campaign lead was Jim Farley of Leichtag Foundation.
