Each year the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens hosts a grand event to kick off the holiday season. You are invited to an exclusive viewing of the Gardens aglow during their annual holiday soirée. Toast to a great year, eat, drink, and be merry. The big tent will be transformed into a festive gathering place wrapped in a warm glow of red and gold, complete with music, drink, and sumptuous bites. This year will also include spirited signature cocktails and an intriguingly interactive way to capture the memories. All proceeds from this fundraiser event help to support Festival of Lights at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. Visit www.gardenbythesea.org for more details.
