‘Moonlight & Music’ equals magic

Tickets are on sale for the garden party, “Moonlight & Music.”

The Aug. 1 benefit for the nonprofit National Tropical Botanical Garden will feature dinner, libations, music, dancing, a silent auction, and more in NTBG’s flagship McBryde Garden.

The event follows the full moon, affording the opportunity to enjoy a lively evening in a moonlit garden setting. Guests will be transported from the South Shore Visitors Center in Poipu into the Lawai Valley on a historic sugar cane train route with spectacular views of Lawai Bay and Allerton Garden.

A special table sponsor reception for Kauwila, Koa, and Ohia Tables will take place at the new Food for Thought garden prior to the main event. Attendees can enjoy talking story over pupus, wine, beer, and soft drinks, and stroll the Biodiversity Trail. Dinner by the orchard will include music by Darryl Gonzales and Garrett Santos, followed by high-energy dance music by The Quake.

During the evening, there will be a silent auction featuring an intricately hand-painted wheelbarrow replete with gardening accessories, a leather “watering can” handbag by designer Kate Spade and a dinner for eight prepared by Chef Roy Yamaguchi. Artwork, wines, dinners, tours, and golfing offerings are some of the other items.

Tickets, $150, are limited to 350 and may be purchased at ntbg.org/moonlightmusic or by calling 332-6500.
