2014 Green & White Ball

The Friends of the Public Garden would like to thank all involved with the very successful 2014 Green and White Ball, held on Friday, May 16, 2014.  The Friends is extremely grateful for the leadership provided by co-Chairs Allison Achtmeyer, Alexis Egan, Annsley McAleer and Katherine O’Keeffe; Honorary co-Chairs Anne Brooke, Nina Doggett and Barbara Hostetter; and the wonderful Ball Committee.  Generous support was received from the Taj Boston, Felix Doolittle, The Moxie Agency, Sultans of Swing and Winston Flowers.

This festive black-tie party raised $400,000 to help the Friends care for the Boston Common, the Public Garden and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, which has been the mission of the Friends since its inception more than 43 years ago.  A major portion of the funds raised at this year’s event will be allocated to the restoration of the George Robert White Memorial fountain in the Public Garden that honors one of Boston’s greatest benefactors and has been inoperable since the 1980s.  If you would like to learn more about the campaign to bring the water back to the White Memorial please contact Mary Halpin at (857) 239-8937 or via mary@friendsofthepublicgarden.org
