Magic in the Meadow Gala

Al fresco dining, crisp fall air and a moonrise over golden meadow grasses are promised when Adkins Arboretum hosts the seventh annual Magic in the Meadow Gala. Tickets are now available for this dazzling gala event on Sat., Sept. 27. Proceeds benefit the Arboretum’s education programs that promote the conservation and preservation of the Chesapeake Bay region’s native landscapes. As twilight falls, guests will enjoy live music by Annapolis-based Unified Jazz Ensemble along with wine, cocktails and spectacular fresh fare by Magnolia Caterers, all served under a grand tent in the meadow surrounded by the Arboretum’s 400 acres of majestic gardens, wetlands, forest and streams. The evening’s exciting live auctions will offer incredible travel experiences, including trips to Tuscany, Provence and Vancouver, local experiences, vacation and dining packages and much more. During the “Best of Live” raffle, one name will be drawn to receive the winner’s choice of 12 unique live auction items. Tickets are $100, and only 100 tickets will be sold. New this year, guests will be invited to raise their paddles for the birds and bees. Donations will underwrite pollinator conservation programs for all ages, enabling the Arboretum to teach the importance of protecting habitat for these critical pollinators that are responsible for the survival of edible and flowering plants. Recognizing the Arboretum’s important conservation mission, 19 regional and national sponsors have lent their support to Magic in the Meadow and the Arboretum’s year-round education programming through the Arboretum’s Corporate Partners Program. Lead sponsors are Unity Landscape Design/Build, CNB, Dover Rent All Tents & Events, and Magnolia Caterers. Tickets for Magic in the Meadow are $150 per person ($75 tax deductible) and may be reserved: or call: 410.634.2847, ext. 0. Contact Leah Reynolds: or 410.634.2847, ext. 33
