Gardens of Golden Gate Park
Gala for the Gardens

Saturday, May 18, 2024
11am – 2pm
San Francisco Botanical Garden, Celebration Garden

With honorees Dr. Frank Almeda and Friends of the Japanese Tea Garden

Join us on Saturday, May 18, 2024 for Gala for the Gardens, the Gardens of Golden Gate Park’s signature fundraising event of the year. Alexis Madrigal, co-host of KQED’s Forum, will serve as emcee for an afternoon when we celebrate all that we love about the Gardens and in the company of friends who share our appreciation of the natural world.

We invite you to support the Gardens by sponsoring this year’s event with the purchase of a table at a level that works for you. Your sponsorship is a chance to introduce new friends to the Gardens and to reconnect with long-time friends over a gourmet lunch al fresco in the Celebration Garden. Additionally, your guests will have the chance to bid on one-of-a-kind auction lots, all in support of the mission of the Gardens of Golden Gate Park.

Gala for the Gardens is our annual fundraising event, providing critical funds to support our conservation and plant diversity efforts, youth education programs, and making our gardens accessible to everyone. We appreciate your consideration of support and look forward to celebrating with you on May 18!
