Your name carved in stone or emblazoned in brass: Print E-mail

How your family, business or foundation can have a positive impact on your city and enjoy the view at the same time.

2005Fall4Bridge.jpgThere are many venues for donations in Dallas but very few are seen by over 100,000 people in just a few weeks’ time, are open year round and serve as a testament of your community spirit and dedication to making Dallas a more beautiful place to live.

I’m talking about the new donor naming opportunities in Phase II of A Woman’s Garden presented by the Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, nearing completion after about 20 years of planning and implementation, at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.

Now is the time to get in on one of the most fabulous opportunities for ongoing name recognition of your family, foundation or business supporting your community.
From the Acequia Garden, The Rockery, The Bride’s Walk to The Grotto and more, naming opportunities are available now and will disappear quickly, once the word gets out.

Donor Naming Ops and parties, too!
Permanent recognition in A Woman’s Garden is included in some of the underwriting opportunities for the April 19th Mad Hatter’s Tea and the May 17th black tie gala celebrating the completion of Phase II.

Definitely a destination event for ladies from all over the United States, Mad Hatter’s Tea is held at the Dallas Arboretum and includes luncheon, fashion show, tours of the garden and much more. April 19th at the Dallas Arboretum. By reservation only. Linda Ivy, Honorary Chairman. Donna Miller, chairman. Teresa Smith, Co-Chairman and Underwriting chairman.

Dallas Blooms, presented by Chase, a celebration of spring at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden begins March 10th and runs through April 17th. Last year, over 120,000 people visited the Dallas Arboretum during this celebration.

The Dallas Arboretum is arguably one of top five floral display gardens in North America. This year’s festival features more than 400,000 spring-blooming bulbs, 20,000 spring-flowering azaleas, 70,000 pansies and violas and thousands of other spring blooming annuals and perennials.

Not to be missed: Eiffel Flower
This year's festival theme is Eiffel Flower featuring a 15-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower atop a festive topiary filled with thousands of flowers and so much more!
