The 2016 Orchid Ball is Sold Out. Thank you for your support.

We are pleased to announce that Marie Selby Botanical Gardens 2016 Orchid Ball: Gowns in the Garden: Experience the Growth, will take place on Saturday, February 13, 2016 on the Gardens Great Lawn. The event will begin with a unique cocktail reception, followed by a fabulous seated dinner, entertainment and dancing.

This year’s Gala proceeds will go to support Selby Gardens education programs, world-class beautiful displays and research. It is our hope that we can help children and families develop an appreciation for nature while gaining empathy and insight into the lives of others through experiencing, discussing and creating and life-long appreciation of discovery.

We hope we can count on your support this year as you enjoy an evening for all the senses, be inspired, and have fun as we raise awareness and funds to support Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. With your support and enthusiasm we can inspire a passion for gardens, plants and botanical science.
