Hats in the Garden Fundraiser’s Patron party hosted by Collier Enterprises


Collier Enterprises will host The Hats in the Garden Patron Party that precedes the Fifth Annual luncheon event benefiting Naples Botanical Garden. The Patron Party will take place on Tuesday, November 11th at 5:30pm at the Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club.

“We are so pleased to have Collier Enterprises host this event for us at their beautiful, new Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club,” said Brian Holley, Executive Director. “Collier Enterprises has been such a great friend to the Garden, providing critical support for our Collier Enterprises South Wetlands preserve area as well as hosting this party.”

Each year, major patrons of the Hats in the Garden luncheon are invited to this appreciation event that takes place the evening before the luncheon.

“With the support of Collier Enterprises, this year’s Patron Party, will be especially exquisite,” stated Karen Scott, event co-chair. “The Hamilton Harbor facilities are absolutely spectacular and we are so glad to be there,” added Vicky Smith, event co-chair.

Collier Enterprises manages a broad range of businesses engaged in real estate investment and development, agriculture and private equity investments. The company was established in 1976 under the leadership of Miles C. Collier, grandson of Collier County founder, Barron Gift Collier.

“Naples Botanical Garden is committed to conservation, which is very important to us,” said Tom Flood, president and CEO of Collier Enterprises. “The Garden will be a place where the community can come to enjoy the beauty of our environment while also learning about ways to preserve it.” For more information on Hats in the Garden contact Lisa Juliano at 239.643.7275 x30 or ljuliano@naplesgarden.org.
