Full bloom summer annuals

The summer annuals are in full bloom at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Celebrate the summer solstice while supporting the Arboretum at Solstice Soiree: Gala in the Gardens Thursday, June 20.

Celebrate the longest day of the year while supporting the Arboretum

The longest day of summer is approaching, and what better way to celebrate the extra sunlight than supporting the Arboretum? Solstice Soiree: Gala in the Gardens is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 20.

Celebrate the longest day of the year by spending extra time in the gardens at the Arboretum. The Arboretum’s major fundraiser includes a reception and silent auction in the Perennial Gardens, followed by dinner al fresco in the Sensory Garden, a program hosted by KARE 11’s Belinda Jensen and a live auction. New this year: an after-party in the Wilson Rose Garden featuring live music by Connie Evingson, sweet treats and coffee.

Tickets are $250 for each individual, $500 for each individual at the patron level, $3,000 for a patron silver table for 10, $6,000 for a patron gold table of 10 and $25 per ticket to the after party.

Visit arboretum.umn.edu/gala.aspx to register. The Arboretum is located at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, 3675 Arboretum Drive, Chanhassen. To learn more about the Arboretum visit arboretum.umn.edu.
