Magic Beyond the Gardens Gala 2012

The fourth annual Magic Beyond the Gardens Gala at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens was held on Saturday night and it was a huge success!  1020 South Street was the place to be with a lively crowd of around 300 supporters!  People from near and far gathered at the non-profit’s mosaic wonderland for an enchanting evening to support art programs that PMG offers the community and help to preserve the artwork by Isaiah Zagar throughout the city. 

I was so proud to be the Chair of the event this year and lead a dedicated committee.  Everyone chipped in tremendously to make it a sold out event! A fashion show featuring local businesses and organizations kicked off the night and then the party continued upstairs in Isaiah's studio to dance to the jazz-infused music of Hot Club of Philadelphia. The night was complete with a silent auction and a raffle of amazing prizes donated by the community! Thanks to all who made it all come together for a great cause. 

Below are photos that tell the story of the evening! Hope to see you at next year's fundraiser.
