The Ruth Bancroft Garden’s annual Gala and online auction is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. The Gala will include a Silent Auction, Fund a Need Live Auction and the Gardeneer Award recognizing an individual’s outstanding support of the Garden.

The event will be held outside in Ruth’s Garden and will consist of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and desserts by Classic Catering, live music with Four and More, and dancing.
