Mounts Botanical Garden’s Annual Spring Benefit
Returns to Palm Beach

After being held onsite the last two years, the 13th annual 
Spring Benefit
 on behalf of Mounts Botanical Garden returned to Palm Beach on Sunday, March 27.

More than 250 generous supporters of Palm Beach County’s oldest and largest public garden attended the reception and auction at the beautiful Palm Beach home of Merrilyn Bardes, which was designed by John Volk.  Guests toured the lush and topical Mediterranean inspired garden and loggia, while examining such exotic silent auction items as tropical orchid arrangements, potted begonias, palms, fruit trees and more. 

This year’s annual Spring Benefit for Mounts raised nearly $75,000
and was chaired by Palm Beach residents 
Polly Reed and Jean Matthews, who were ably assisted by several board members from the Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden, including Leslie Mann, Barbara Cook, Kathy Vaughan and Sarah Macintyre Goldstein.

Among those attending the delightful event were Palm Beach Town Councilman Michael Pucillo and his wife Deborah, Palm Beach
County School Board member 
Jenny Prior Brown, TV’s top home improvement expert Bob Vila, Mounts Board Chair Michael Zimmerman and Audrey R. Norman, Director of Palm Beach
County Cooperative Extension Service.

“The ambiance and architectural splendor of Merrilyn’s beautiful
home and garden were an ideal location for our annual Spring Benefit,” said Mounts Garden Director 
Allen Sistrunk.  “It was indeed a
blessed evening.”
