SUMMER SOIRÉE

July 18

What could be more delightful than a summer evening under the trees at Lakewold Gardens, savoring a glass of wine with friends while enjoying the music of MusicWorks4Veterans. John Selzer's band enhances the quality of life for military veterans by hosting inclusive jams and encouraging participation in the music-making process. Partygoers will hear from artist Charles Burt, a member of Bedlam Arts, a group for veterans that encourages mindfulness through painting and creative expression in a social environment. Spirited and beloved art auctioneer Laura Michalek will entertain and encourage us to bid on beautiful art pieces donated by local artists. The Gardens are for healing and joy: be there to support the Gardens you love.
