A Rare Affair

The Woman’s Board of the Chicago Horticultural Society presents a chance to take home unique horticultural finds from the Chicago Botanic Garden’s international research expeditions and donations from the nation’s top nurseries. The event begins with cocktails and a silent auction in the Regenstein Center, followed by dinner on McGinley Pavilion and a live auction of the most select rare plants. All proceeds from A Rare Affair go toward renovation of the English Walled Garden and replanting areas affected by the emerald ash borer.
