Holden's 30th Summer Benefit

Illumination at Woodland Twilight

Saturday, July 12

Share an evening with new and longtime friends while raising proceeds to support the plant collections. This year, Holden will be honoring Betty Farenchak.


The gala kicks off at 5:30pm with a cocktail reception and dinner. This year's benefit will feature a silent and a live auction, with the option of bidding for silent auction items online.


This year's live auction features a week's stay at a historic home in Vermont, use of a three-bedroom flat in the heart of London, dinner for 20 created by Chris Hodgson, who was voted Food and Wine magazine's Best New Chef for the Great Lakes region; and a chance to learn from and golf with Ben Curtis, who won the Open Championship in 2003 in his debut appearance.
