WHAT IS GARDEN TOUR?
For the past thirty years, the Friends of Robinson Gardens has organized the annual "...into the garden" Benefit Garden Tour to raise funds for the Virginia Robinson Gardens historical estate.
Known as Beverly Hills' garden party of the year, this event is truly a one-of-a-kind garden tour experience as ticket holders get the opportunity to visit selected private home gardens rarely seen by the public. The affair peaks mid-day with a catered luncheon at the Virginia Robinson Gardens, at which time the Friends honor a member of the community as its Grand Marshal. This year's Grand Marshal is renowned interior and architectural designer, Richard Shapiro. Throughout the estate, ticket holders can view the mansion's historical rooms uniquely embellished by premier interior designers and florists. The luncheon program includes a fashion show of the latest looks by the top fashion designer Ted Baker. Guests also have the opportunity to enjoy and shop the beautiful boutique located at the covered tennis court.
