Fundraiser for city’s public garden and park takes place October 2
Cylburn Arboretum glowing under an Autumn full moon—the perfect setting for an evening of dinner, dancing and support for one of Baltimore City’s treasures.
Begin with cocktails and a silent auction in the Mansion. Then dine under a canopy on the West Lawn. Philadelphia’s Beats Walkin’ will provide the music, Texas-swing style, while a professional auctioneer offers exotic getaways and other intriguing must-haves. All proceeds support the Cylburn Arboretum Association and its mission to provide support and stewardship for Baltimore City’s Arboretum as a place of natural beauty, tranquility, culture, and learning open to all.
