On a sunny Sunday afternoon in early May 2017, The Gardens hosted a fabulous, Cuban-inspired fiesta to celebrate spring and raise funds for our nonprofit organization.
Hundreds of guests in attendance enjoyed tasty tapas of roasted pig, ceviche, and paella, as well as amazing mojitos from Cuban cuisine sensation, HAVANA in Walnut Creek. Craft beer was donated from LOST COAST BREWERY, and a selection of yummy tropical desserts generously provided by CULINARY EXCELLENCE. The atmosphere was kept festive throughout the afternoon with the lively Latin sounds of renowned Bay Area salsa band, VL TRIO. Colorful floral designs were donated by SWEETNESS & LIGHT and party rentals by CHAIRS FOR AFFAIRS. One of our organization’s largest fundraisers of the year, Fiesta de Jardin 2017 generated thousands of dollars to support our free public garden and nature education programs. Thank you to all attendees, donors and sponsors for making this event a success!
