Thanks for Supporting The Garden Party!


Thanks to those of you who supported SDBG by joining The Garden Party! Because of your support, we raised over $145,000 to support our Garden’s programs, research, and outreach, throughout San Diego County and globally. We would like to thank all of our Event Sponsors, Food & Beverage Sponsors, Entertainers, and our amazing staff and volunteers for making the Party so special. And be sure to ‘save the date’ for next year’s Garden Party, on Saturday, September 7, 2024!
