A warm autumn evening drew about 200 patrons of the Bartlett Arboretum to Nestlé Waters headquarters for the “Bamboo Benefit,” an eco-friendly celebration that included a silent auction, cocktails, a mobile feast by Marcia Selden Catering & Event Planning, magical entertainment by Ryan Oakes and musical performances by the Fontenay Wind Players and jazz singer Kelly Mittleman. In a surprise announcement, Joan and Stuart Danoff were honored with the Silver Education Award. Proceeds from the event will support the arboretum’s educational and botanical programs.
