Midnight at the Oasis

With camels, fire eaters, belly dancers and snake charmers, Selby Gardens 32nd Annual Orchid Ball transported attendees on a magic carpet ride to a faraway place, “Midnight At the Oasis.” The gala, chaired this year by Wayne & Mindy Rollins, was a veritable feast for the eyes, ears and palates of nearly 250 guests, many of whom were clad in sumptuously colored silks, caftans and fez. Proceeds from this festive affair help suppot Selby Gardens’ year round mission of tropical plant conservation, education, horticulture and research.
