Wellfield Evening in the Gardens Program 2023

Evening in the Gardens: New Horizons
Thursday | September 7
6 p.m. cocktail hour and a toast to our supporters
7 p.m. dinner, live music, and a celebration of our supporters who help us grow!

Evening in the Gardens: New Horizons is our premier party of the year, celebrating the supporters who help us grow and this year celebrating the launch of Wellfield’s public phase of the Events and Visitors Center Expansion Project Campaign.

Please join us as we begin a transformational chapter in Wellfield’s history that realizes four key Master Plan features: a much-anticipated 12,000 sq.ft. Visitors Center with event capacity, an Open Air Pavilion, relocation and repurposing of the existing Visitors Cottage, and increased parking capacity, along with an endowment fund to sustain growth. In addition to sharing our appreciation for our Annual Partners, Sponsors, and supporters, we’ll pay special tribute to those who have made this project a reality, including a very special 2023 Spirit of Wellfield Award announcement, honoring the exemplification of the Garden’s mission including celebrating the inseparable relationship between water and life, inspiring creativity and lifelong learning, fostering stewardship of our natural world, and growing community.

Wellfield closes to the public at 3 p.m. on this special evening to provide exclusive access to our closest friends and supporters.
