The Friends of the Public Garden's 2019 Green and White Ball

| May 10, 2019 | Parties

On Friday, April 26th, 2019 just under 300 guests came out for the Friends of the Public Garden’s signature springtime black-tie gala, the Green and White Ball, at the Four Seasons Boston and raised $580,000 to provide care for the Boston Common, Public Garden, and Commonwealth Avenue Mall. Friends Executive Director Elizabeth Vizza, Friends Board Chair Leslie Adam, Honorary Chair Peter A. Brooke, whose late wife Anne Brooke played an integral role in the organization and this event for many years, and co-Chairs Ashley Harmon, Amanda Pratt, Jessica Schmitz, and Lisa Taffe (all from Beacon Hill) welcomed guests for the elegant seated dinner of vichyssoise and halibut and dancing with the band Night Shift. Event partner Marc Hall dazzled guests with his floral inspiration for this year - the rose – with towering rose sculptures atop the tables.
