Although the Garden is located on the Virginia Tech campus, we receive no operational funds from the university. Therefore, we are very dependent on fund raising activities and the Garden Gala is our largest single fundraiser each year. The Gala is an evening for friends and fellow garden enthusiasts to gather in support of Garden improvements and on-going maintenance.This year's Gala will feature food and drink by Blue Ridge Catering, live music by Vinyl Tap, and a live and silent auction which will feature unique plants, original artwork by local artists, trips and garden furniture.
This year's theme is based on Pantone's 2018 Color of the Year - Ultra Violet. The color signifies an energetic and imaginative view toward the future which is highly appropriate given we have a new director, Scott Douglas, who has come with many thoughts on how to improve and enliven the Hahn Garden. This year’s logo is a color changed watercolor by local artist Gerri Young.
Registration for the 2018 Garden Gala will be through a mail-in ticket form. The form can be accessed here. Please fill out and mail in your form with payment by June 1st, 2018.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions on how to register by mail.

Consider donating an auction item or being a sponsor!
Check back for a list of auction items later this spring! Live auction of premium offerings. Silent auction of rare plants, garden art, and more. We accept credit cards!
Want to help the garden even more? Be a sponsor! The real fundraising starts here. As you know, the Hahn Horticulture Garden is self-sustaining. All operating funds for internships, maintenance, plant acquisition, and new garden features depend on the generosity of our constituents.
