Garden of Eden Ball

Into the Woods

The Garden of Eden Ball is the largest annual fundraiser in support of the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The black-tie gala features a spectacular evening of dinner and dancing on the Great Lawn.

This year's theme Into the Woods celebrates the many enhancements breaking ground in Storza Woods as well the opening of a new woodland garden in Gainesville.
