The 2014 Splendor Under Glass raised more than $254,000 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.

Guests wore their finest feathers while enjoying an evening in celebration of the Garden's 30th anniversary. The event honored Frank and JoRoyce Robinson and featured fire dancers, an aerialist ribbon dancer and music by Jump Street Band. The Gala was chaired by Jenny Simpson, Shannon Weisleder, and Peyton Wells. Catering by Meriwether Godsey. Entertainment by Mesmerizing Arts.
