Join us for the 20th Anniversary Green and White Ball to celebrate 20 years of tremendous support of the Boston Common, Public Garden and Commonwealth Avenue Mall. The evening will feature cocktails and dinner, a special 20th Anniversary program with a few surprises, followed by dancing to the sounds of the Pops Jazz Trio and the band Night Shift. Funds raised at the Green & White Ball will enable the Friends of the Public Garden to continue to preserve, enhance and advocate for our beloved Common, Garden, and Mall.

We are so pleased to have Elizabeth L. Johnson and Kate Gilbane as our Honorary Chairs this year. Without their many years of commitment to this event it would not have been nearly as successful. We are truly grateful for their steadfast support. This special 20th Anniversary celebration will also include a tribute to the late Friends Board Chair, Anne F. Brooke. Anne’s visionary leadership of the Friends and tremendous commitment to the Green and White Ball are greatly missed.
