An Evening in Shangri-La at the Virginia Robinson Gardens
On September 13, the Friends of Robinson Gardens created the most glamorous evening of the year at their 2014 Patron Gala, An Evening in Shangri-La. The chrysanthemum-edged path led the guests to the tennis court that was transformed into an exotic al fresco cocktail lounge.
Later in the evening, an elegant dinner was served under the stars on the great lawn. Dessert and dancing were offered after a delightful performance by Bollywood dancers and the following presentation.
This year’s honorees were Maralee Beck, recipient of the “Spirit of Beverly Hills Award” and Jamie Wolf, the “Camilla Award” winner.
The Presidents, Adrienne Horwitch and Julia Klein welcomed everyone and especially thanked Ellisa Bregman and Leslie Tillman for the superb evening which they created.
Tim Lindsay, the Superintendent of Robinson Gardens for the County of Los Angeles, was able to update us on the continuing restoration goals. And in the process, many who attended contributed additional dollars to assist in completing these projects.
To see how extraordinary the evening was, view the following photographs.
