(West Palm Beach, FL - March 18, 2010)  Michael Zimmerman, president of the board of directors of The Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden, welcomed more than 130 supporters at the nonprofit organization’s 12th annual Spring Benefit & Auction.  Under the theme of Enchanted Garden, the event was held at Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach.

In addition to mouth-dropping, eye-popping “horticultural performance art” by DiVine, a live jazz trio and barefoot fairies, the event also included the awarding of the organization's annual Friend of the Garden Awards to the Esther B. O’Keeffe Foundation, the Junior League of the Palm Beaches and Palm Beach County Commissioner Jeff Koons. 

Both the O’Keeffe Foundation and the Junior League received a permanent bench in the garden - complete with identifying plaque -- where people can sit and admire the natural beauty around them. In honor of Commissioner Koons, Mounts will soon plant a new tree in the Garden. 

“All three of this year’s award winners have proven to be true friends of Mounts Botanical Garden, and generous in both their time and support,” said Zimmerman. “The Esther B. O’Keefe Foundation has given Mounts more than $200,000 for capital projects in the Garden; the Junior League of the Palm Beaches has repeatedly partnered with us, particularly on programs for children; and not only has he been a strong political and community supporter, but Jeff Koons even comes out occasionally to help us pull weeds.”

Guests at Mounts annual Spring Benefit enjoyed wine and hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction of beautiful and uncommon plants, garden art, and exciting dining and entertainment packages.

Leslie Mann chaired the organizing committee for the 12th annual Spring Benefit with special help from Barbara Cook, Sarah Macintyre Goldstein, Stormi Bivin, Paton White, Beverly Miller, Kathy Vaughan and Joy Ford Le.
