The Dallas Arboretum held its Corporate Dinner on March 23 with more than 200 people whose companies and businesses support the garden at a high level. Guests enjoyed cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. Tram drivers gave tours throughout the garden to see the Japanese cherry trees and the 500,000 spring flowers—tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and more—that were in full bloom in every color palette.
Dallas Arboretum Board Chair Will McDaniel welcomed guests to the Southwest’s largest floral festival and thanked the Dallas Arboretum board members in attendance. Robin Norcross, Dallas Arboretum contributed revenue committee chair, gave a state of the garden update including a recent accolade from Travel+Leisure that said this “Texas Flower Festival May be the Most Beautiful Springtime Destination in the U.S.” She also thanked the major donors, committee and staff for their contributions. Then visitors enjoyed a lovely dinner with the sounds of a jazz trio. McDaniel concluded the evening with final thanks to everyone for the continued support of this Dallas gem.
