Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, together with Neiman Marcus Coral Gables, will host the second annual “Splendor in the Garden” on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013.
The afternoon will feature a champagne reception in the Garden followed by a seated luncheon and formal fashion show produced by Ken Downing, Neiman Marcus vice president and fashion director. In addition, Fairchild will honor a group of special women who have made significant contributions to Fairchild’s success and who have made “giving fashionable.”
Those being honored are Jan Risi Field, Paula Brockway, Terry Buoniconti, Maria Alonso, Bunny Bastian, Martha Clinton, and Anne Baddour. They will be recipients of the 2013 Fairchild Philanthropy Award. All proceeds will benefit Fairchild’s numerous programs in conservation, science, children’s education and research.
