The Beacon Hill Garden Club’s Soirée co-chairs, Suzanne Eliastam and Sharon Malt, have announced that plans for the Sixth Annual Soirée, the party open to the public before the next day’s Tour of the Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill, have firmed up. The event features drinks, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment and will again be held in the King’s Chapel Parish House’s garden, reached from Branch Street. The date is Wednesday, May 17, from 5:00-7:30 p.m., rain or shine.
From 5 to 6 p.m. the club will offer attendees tours of three of the gardens that will be shown the next day on the Tour of the Hidden Gardens.
Ticket prices are $200 each for general admission. Soirée Supporter tickets are available at $250 for those wanting to offer more support toward the garden club’s philanthropic mission. The club will provide Soirée Supporters and Corporate Sponsors with special recognition at the event and through other promotional avenues. The Soirée ticket includes admittance to the tour itself on Thursday, May 18.
In non-pandemic years, proceeds from the Soirée and the Tour of the Hidden Gardens have recently enabled the club to contribute more than $100,000 to mostly local organizations that engage is worthy horticultural and environmental endeavors.
The Beacon Hill Garden Club is grateful to the sponsors of this event. Once again, the lead sponsor for the event is Fiduciary Trust. Other sponsors are Beacon Hill Books and Café, FH Perry Construction, LandVest and Upstairs Downstairs Antiques.
The Soirée is always sold out, and the co-chairs are certain that this year’s party will give the 2023 tour a great send-off.
