A Spectacular Night

To the Editor,

Friday, April 29, was a spectacular night for our beloved parks. Thanks to all of you, the Green & White Ball returned in magnificent fashion after two long years, raising nearly $500,000 to support the care of the Boston Common, Public Garden, and Commonwealth Avenue Mall.

From the stunning Marc Hall design to the artful lighting provided by Frost Production, a sumptuous dinner by the Four Seasons, and the dance-all-night sounds of Night Shift, the 2022 Green & White Ball was truly an evening to remember.

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who helped make this very special event happen, especially our co-chairs Tess Atkinson and Kate Enroth and their dedicated committee. As Tess so eloquently put it, “it was an evening of beauty, joy, and gratitude.”

With this year’s ball falling on Arbor Day, it seemed appropriate to celebrate how the Friends cares for 1,700 trees in the three parks. If you haven’t yet had a chance to support the ball and would like to support the trees directly, you can make a gift here.

On behalf of the #threeparks and the entire Friends of the Public Garden staff, board, and community, thank you. You can join us in celebrating the generous sponsors who support the event and the committee who makes this all possible here.

With Gratitude,

Liz Vizza

Board Chair
