Great Gardens Party

September 23, 2020 6:00 pm 9:00 pm

Please note: This is the new date for the Great Gardens Party, originally scheduled for May 6, 2020.

The Great Gardens Party is the one of two annual fundraising galas at Meijer Gardens. Wine and dine with friends and colleagues, enjoying cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a sit-down dinner. Each year, the Great Gardens Party offers silent and live auctions for fantastic items and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. All proceeds support Meijer Gardens’ mission of promoting the enjoyment, understanding and appreciation of gardens, sculpture, the natural environment and the arts.

There are many ways to participate:

  • Host a table for 10 people by becoming an event sponsor. Sponsorship levels include Blossom ($12,000), Bud ($6,000) or Seed ($3,000).
  • Donate an item for the silent auction or live auction. Unique or experiential items are preferred.
  • Purchase event tickets for yourself, friends, family and/or clients at $100 each.
