Splendor Under Glass 2013

Splendor Under Glass Conservaory Lewis Ginter

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s Splendor Under Glass fundraiser is an invitation-only, black tie gala staged in the dramatic and spectacular glass Conservatory. The theme for 2013 is Entwined.

On November 23, 2013 we will come together for an evening“Entwined” with nature in support of Lewis Ginter’s core mission to enlighten, inspire and educate us all about the world of plants, and our ever-vital role in stewardship and preservation. The evening will honor Ann Lee Saunders Brown (Mrs. Charles L. Brown), whose long-standing love for the Garden is legendary.

“Entwined” promises a sensory experience – visual and culinary – where a sumptuously prepared seated dinner will highlight locally sourced food and where naturally divine décor promises to delight your senses. Unique this year will be our first Garden Market – Lush & Local - where one-of-a-kind, locally made specialty items, each exquisitely hand-crafted, will be available for purchase. Entertainment guarantees to enliven the evening.

The Garden’s first Splendor Under Glass was held in March 2003, celebrating the grand opening of the Conservatory and was highlighted in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Virginia Magazine and Richmond Magazine. With such a beautiful setting, the Gala continues to be a premiere Richmond event year after year.

Splendor Under Glass 2013 is presented by Bon Secours Virginia Health Systems. Contributing sponsors include MeadWestvaco and CapTech. The event is chaired by Madeline Hutcheson Mayhood. Catering is by Meriwether Godsey.
