2013 Green & White Ball
Friday, May 17, 2013 at The Taj Boston
Join the Friends of the Public Garden for the 2013 Green and White Ball on Friday, May 17 at 6:30 pm at the Taj Boston. The gala will feature a cocktail reception and dinner followed by dancing to the Sultans of Swing.
Thanks to ongoing community support, we’ll be celebrating another year of preservation and improvement projects for our treasured green spaces: the Boston Common, the Public Garden and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall. This year, we conducted a major pruning of the majestic old elms on the Mall, re-lit the Boylston Street statues in the Garden after decades of darkness and celebrated the grand opening of our renovated Brewer Fountain Plaza on the Common. Seemingly overnight, the Brewer Plaza has become one of the most unique gathering places in the city.
In the fall of 2013, we will begin the final phase of the Brewer Fountain Plaza renovation, which includes restoring the historic fence along Tremont Street and distinguishing the Common as parkland once again. We are pleased to announce that $250,000 of the net proceeds from this year’s Green and White Ball will help fund the final $850,000 needed for the project.
In honor of this year’s Brewer Fountain efforts, we are offering special Brewer Patron recognition to those who purchase a table for $15,000. As always, seats for the Green and White Ball are limited.
Tables and individual seats can be purchased here.
