On Friday, May 16, 2014, The Friends of the Public Garden celebrated its annual Green and White Ball with 200 guests at the Taj Boston. This festive black-tie party raised $400,000 provide care for the Public Garden, Boston Common and Commonwealth Avenue Mall, which has been the mission of the Friends since its inception over 43 years ago. Winston Flowers transformed the Grand Ballroom into a garden oasis with oversized “tree” centerpieces and hanging lanterns, while guests enjoyed signature green and white cocktails and event band The Sultans of Swing. A portion of the funds raised at this year’s Green & White will be allocated to restore the George Robert White Memorial Fountain, an angel sculpture and fountain in the Public Garden that honors one of Boston’s greatest benefactors and has been inoperable since the early 1980s.
