Gala in The Gardens was sponsored by the Sterne Agee Charitable Foundation, 1919 Investment Counsel and Stifel Financial. Guests enjoyed a black-tie preview of Antiques at the Gardens, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and music by Rhythm Nation.
Antiques at The Gardens featured Tastemakers who are regionally and nationally known architects, interior designers and landscape designers. Each designer curated themed areas with goods selected from the best of Birmingham and other sources around the country.
Proceeds from Antiques at The Gardens support educational programs at Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Since 2006, the event has raised more than $4.6 million for The Gardens.
