This fall, Yew Dell will host the 2011 version of what has become one of the most anticipated fund-raising parties of the Year – Twilight in the Garden, sponsored by Brown Forman. And while this year’s offering will have all the energy and brilliance of past editions, guests will be delighted with a whole new twist. Twilight – The Best Light will feature a celebration of the night garden complete with stunning lighting by presenting sponsor Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. Past silent and live auctions will be replaced by a slate of games (you know … the fund-raising kind!) for a chance to win a week at incomparable Maison Rose in France, ring toss for fabulous wine and other opportunities to win jewelry, dinner, and more. You’ll even be able to participate in some of the games online before the event. Twilight will include sumptuous farm-fresh food by Corbett’s, a bar stocked with Brown-Forman beverages and an energy level not to be missed. Buy your tickets today – or better yet, get together a group and buy a table for 10! www.yewdellgardens.org/events or 502.241.4788
