Powell Gardens – Party Under the Moon: Cheers to 30 Years!

On September 23rd, Powell Gardens was the site for Party Under the Moon: Cheers to 30 Years!  The fun started with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Guests bid on fall plants, gustatory experiences and trips for the horticulturally-minded at the silent auction. While strolling through the Gardens, everyone savored the delicacies prepared by local chefs. Desserts were served in a tent, followed by a program and a toast to the 30th anniversary.
