Gala in the Garden

Gala in the Garden is Fairchild's largest annual fundraiser. In celebration of Fairchild's 81st year, we are excited to announce that Gala in the Garden will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2020.

Guests will enjoy an evening of unmatched beauty, while celebrating and supporting our programs in science education, conservation, horticulture and research.

This black tie formal event begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction in the Adam R. Rose and Peter R. McQuillan Arts Center, followed by a seated dinner overlooking Pandanus Lake and dancing under the stars. Featured in Miami Magazine as one of South Florida's "Top 3" not-to-miss parties, this magical evening in the Garden is the most beautiful and fun-filled event of the social season.

Gala in the Garden 2020 is chaired by Swanee DiMare and Frances Sevilla Sacasa. Tickets start at $1,000 per person. Tables for 10 start at $10,000. For reservations and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Susannah Shubin at
