in recognition of their support of Queens Botanical Garden and commitment to the education of children in Queens

Join us as we celebrate our 75th anniversary as a public garden and honor the Joan N. and Norman Bluestone Foundation and its Trustees by purchasing a sponsorship, tickets, or a journal ad! Your sponsorship of Rambling Rose Gala 2023 helps sustain QBG’s colorful flowers, innovative programs, and environmental education workshops, and gives our community a place to gather and heal in nature.

To safely gather at the Garden, we once again will invite guests to “ramble” through various gardens, to enjoy the beauty of flowers, and to breathe in the fresh air. So, wear your walking shoes and prepare for an enjoyable evening outdoors – rain or shine!

Guests will include political and corporate leaders, community members, local business leaders, and garden lovers. Sponsorship offers your organization great visibility, reaching thousands of Garden friends through event publicity, digital journal, onsite acknowledgement, and recognition on the Garden’s website. Sponsorships made by April 3 are sure to be listed in the invitation.

Help us commemorate 75 years of being open to the public as the official botanical garden of Queens! If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Olivia Cothren at 718-886-3800 ext. 330 or Annette Fanara at ext. 202.

Thank you in advance for your participation and support.
