Botanic Garden 2009 Fundraiser Party October 16 2009

I donated a Pittsburgh skyline photography print for this fundraiser happening October 16, 2009. My mother was a big fan of this effort and I hope to see it get the money it needs to move forward.

Check out the website for the details. You can register for the dinner or just for the party afterwards. If you can't make the event considering donating.

why pittsburgh needs bgwp!

Western Pennsylvania is the only metropolitan region of its size in the United States without an outdoor botanic garden. Botanic gardens are destinations that stimulate cultural, educational and economic enrichment far beyond their boundaries. Botanic gardens celebrate plants in beautiful and educational outdoor settings. While serving the needs of the community by displaying regionally hardy plants, the garden will offer dramatic color, outdoor classrooms, spectacular vistas, woodland walks, environmental "laboratories" and special venues for cultural and social events.
