On April 27, 2018, Boston's most anticipated springtime gala, the Friends of the Public Garden's Green and White Ball, raised $650,000 for the care of the Boston Common, Public Garden and Commonwealth Avenue Mall. Nearly 300 guests enjoyed the Friends' largest fundraiser of the year, which was led by co-chairs Tamar Frieze, Ashley Harmon, Jackie McCabe, and Jessica Schmitz. Blossoming at a new venue, the Four Seasons Hotel Boston, the event's new partners Marc Hall Design, Frost Productions and PEAK Event Services, delighted guests with a stunning design deeply rooted in the history of the parks. The Ball honored Honorary co-chairs Julie and Ronald Druker, and The Druker Company, LTD was a generous Underwriter sponsor of the event. Party-goers, which included the Young Friends of the Public Garden, donned fashion-forward floral gowns and dapper tuxedos and enjoyed a lively cocktail reception, a three-course dinner and dancing with the band Night Shift.
