Queens Botanical Garden Rose Gala
Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Despite temperatures in the upper 90’s, more than 160 guests gathered at Queens Botanical Garden for its annual Rose Gala on Tuesday, June 13, 2017, joining the Garden to honor Rovena Schirling, former Board Chair and dear friend of QBG, for her longstanding support and outstanding commitment to the Garden.
Thanks go to our Rose Gala Committee led by Board Chair, Pauline Huang; Trustees Julia Ermish, Lucy Hossain, Debra Lodge, Edie Meyer, Bianca Ng, and Michelle Stoddart; and Rovena Schirling for all their efforts toward making the Rose Gala a success.
