Join us Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 6 - 10pm for the Fourth Annual Carolina Moonlight Gala benefitting the North Carolina Botanical Garden. A spectacular summer evening, under a beautiful waning gibbous moon, offers a perfect evening “out” in the garden.

With the Garden as its center, the evening promises great food, drink, live music, dancing and a silent and live auction to support the Garden’s environmental protection, education, and conservation. A special Call for the Cause will support the Garden's Horticultural Therapy program which offers a unique natural environment for individuals in need of mental, emotional, physical and/or intellectual support.

About the Gala’s Name

The Gala is named after a plant, of course! The beautiful horticultural selection Baptisia X 'Carolina Moonlight' was selected at the North Carolina Botanical Garden by Rob Gardner in 2002. It is a cross between two of our native Baptisia species: white wild indigo (Baptisia alba) and the yellow wild indigo (Baptisia sphaerocarpa). This gorgeous hybrid well represents the Garden's significant contribution to native plant introductions and is a perfect symbol for our annual gala celebration. The botanical featured in the new Botanical Garden Foundation logo design is by Helen Conrad. The rendering of the Baptisia sphaerocarpa in the invitation logo is by Gretchen Morrissey.
