We are pleased to announce Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ 2017 Orchid Ball: une soirée en fleurs will take place on Saturday, February 11, 2017, on the Gardens’ Great Lawn.

Please consider participating as a sponsor of the 2017 Orchid Ball where you will have the honor of experiencing the opening night of Marc Chagall, Flowers, and the French Riviera: The Color of Dreams, with an exclusive preview of the French Riviera-inspired dreamscape of our Conservatory and grounds.

The proceeds from the Orchid Ball support Selby Gardens’ community education programs, international research, conservation and beautiful world-class horticulture displays. It is our hope that we can help children and families develop an appreciation for nature. Our goal is to create a life-long appreciation of botanical science, gardens and plants.

Through your support we raise funds to create awareness and encourage a passion for the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and its educational programming and research.

Sponsorships are available from $40,000 to $6,000 and tickets are available for $1,000 and $400. Enclosed please find a Sponsorship form that outlines the various levels of support with benefits. If you are unable to attend the event, we encourage you to make a tax-deductible contribution.

Your support is paramount to the sustainability of Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. If you have any questions about the sponsorships, please contact Marie Selby Botanical Gardens Events Department at 941-366-5731 Ext 251 or orchidball@selby.org
