11th Annual Art in the Garden Gala
Sunday, September 14, 2014 2-6pm
Tickets On Sale Now!
If you have attended this event in the past, you already know how much FUN the Gala is for everyone involved! Come join us for our biggest annual fundraising event of the year, complete with premium local wines & beer, delicious local food pairings, entertainment, and, of course, gorgeous garden ART! The Gala is vitally important to our our mission: to restore and conserve the Laguna de Santa Rosa and to inspire public appreciation for this Wetland of International Importance.
The Vine Hill House at O'Connell Vineyards of Sebastopol is the perfect setting for our beautiful fundraiser. The estate overlooks the Santa Rosa plain, and is surrounded by grounds of lawns and flower gardens, vineyards, and spectacular views from every side.
