Garden of Eden Ball
Saturday, September 28
The Garden of Eden Ball is the Garden’s largest annual fund-raiser. The black-tie gala has come a long way since its early days in a tent in a former parking lot that’s now the popular Edible Garden.
Announcing a gala unlike any other! The one and only, Garden of Eden Ball: Circus is in town for one night only. This is a spectacle you will not want to miss. Enjoy a sparkling and unforgettable evening as Mary Wayne Dixon is honored for her remarkable leadership, inspiration, and volunteer service to the the Ball for 25 years.
Ball Co-Chairs Ginger Dixon Molloy and Susan Been are planning an incredibly fun evening under the Big Top. The show will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on Howell Fountain Plaza at dusk. Parties to Die For will transform the tented ballroom upon the Great Lawn into a three-ring extravaganza. Center ring will feature amazing circus performances by The Imperial Opa, a three-course seated dinner, and live music performed by Atlanta Showstoppers that will have guests dancing the night away.
