DALLAS, Texas, April 9, 2024—The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden held its annual Friends Blooms Dinner on March 27th. This dinner honors Friends of the Arboretum and Caroline Rose Hunt Society patrons, a distinguished group of garden donors who annually support the garden’s ongoing horticulture, education and research efforts.

The evening began with a cocktail hour held in the Entry Plaza where more than 300 friends enjoyed beverages and light bites. Following cocktails, the event moved inside Rosine Hall for a seated dinner served by Gil’s Elegant Catering. Prior to dinner service, Will McDaniel, Dallas Arboretum board chair, and Sabina Carr, Dallas Arboretum president and CEO, welcomed and thanked everyone for supporting the garden and helping it to grow.

Friends of the Arboretum and Caroline Rose Hunt Society members receive benefits above and beyond general membership, including reserved parking, discounts on special event rentals, travel opportunities, elegant dinners in the garden and more.  For more information on these groups, visit
