Create & Connect: An Idaho Botanical Garden Fundraiser

Are you itching to get outside and connect with friends?

Idaho Botanical Garden (2355 Old Penitentiary Rd. Boise) has revamped their annual fundraiser for you to better fit our new, weird normal. Listen to live music, enjoy local food and drinks (you get one free), and create fun projects with DIY kits all while maintaining social distance and supporting a great cause. You can also bid in a digital auction with super unique items from June 12th – June 21st.

Create & Connect: An Idaho Botanical Garden Fundraiser takes place this Sunday Jun 20 with Brunch taking place 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Happy Hour from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.

This spring, the Garden was closed as part of Idaho’s “Stay at Home” order to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. Like many organizations, we lost significant revenue as a result and face a significant and continued loss in the near future through the cancellation and postponement of our events. We appreciate your support so that we can keep our staff employed, our plants growing, and to continue offering the events and programs you know and love.

Pick a session (or both) and add your a la cart food, drinks, and DIY Kits. Pack your picnic gear; low back chairs, blankets, hats, sunscreen, and water bottles (we have a water filling station), and join us on June 20th in the Garden. Get your tickets before they sell out!
