Please accept our heartfelt thanks for celebrating 175 years of connecting people with plants at Under the Harvest Moon Gala on September 17, 2016. The special evening commemorated the 175th anniversary of the Worcester County Horticultural Society and the 30th anniversary of the establishment of Tower Hill Botanic Garden. The guests mingled amidst internationally-acclaimed artist Patrick Dougherty’s striking Stickwork installation, and enjoyed a rustically elegant evening of signature cocktails, seasonal farm-to-table dinner, live music, and auction…all under September’s spectacular Harvest Moon!

We thank you for your support at the auction. Your contribution enabled us surpass our reach goal of $175,000 net for the evening! It’s with your support that we achieved this success and move forward on another 175 years of inspiring the use and appreciation of horticulture to improve lives, enrich communities and strengthen commitment to the natural world. We thank you for your contributions, enthusiasm and dedication to the growing phenomenon that is Tower Hill Botanic Garden.
