Join us to celebrate another year of successful preservation and improvement projects in our treasured green spaces: the Boston Common, the Public Garden and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall. The Green and White Ball will include a cocktail reception & dinner followed by dancing to the sounds of the Sultans of Swing.

The 2014 Green and White Ball Co-Chairs are Alli Achtmeyer, Alexis Egan, Annsley McAleer, and Katherine O’Keeffe. The Honorary Co-Chairs are Mrs. Peter A. Brooke, Mrs. Eugene B. Doggett, and Mrs. Amos B. Hostetter, Jr.

We are excited to share that the Friends has begun plans for the restoration of the beautiful, long dormant fountain under the George Robert White Memorial, also known as “the Angel”, in the northwest corner of the Public Garden. $250,000 of the net proceeds from this year’s Green and White Ball will be used to fund this initiative.  In honor of this important restoration project, we are offering special White Fountain Angel recognition to those who purchase a table for $15,000.
