Naples Botanical Garden’s 2008-09 season of events to be sponsored by Kraft Construction


Naples Botanical Garden is pleased to announce that Kraft Construction is the sponsor of the Garden’s 2008-09 season of events.

“Kraft is known as the builder of our community, so it is natural that they have joined with us to lay a strong foundation of the Garden’s events,” said Brian Holley, Executive Director. “Kraft has been such a great supporter in many ways – last year they were presenting sponsor for our golf tournament. And, of course, we are partners on our expansion.”

The Garden’s season will include the upcoming Fifth Annual Hats in the Garden on Wednesday, November 12th, 2008. This event, the largest fundraiser of the Garden’s social season is nearly sold out. Those wishing to attend should contact Lisa Juliano at 239.643.7275 or ljuliano@naplesgarden.org.

In addition to Hats in the Garden, the Kraft Sponsorship will support the Seventh Annual Trunk Show in the Garden on Thursday, February 19th through Saturday, February 21st, 2009 and the Ninth Annual Swing into Spring Golf Tournament on Monday, April 6th, 2009.

Currently closed to the general public due to expansion, Naples Botanical Garden is poised to become one of the world’s great gardens. A team of nationally and internationally recognized leaders in landscape architecture, horticulture and green building design have created an elaborate mosaic of themed gardens. The gardens will feature the plants and cultures of Asia, Brazil, the Caribbean and Southwest Florida. In addition, a hands-on children’s garden will include a beautiful and interactive planting area, and will recreate seven child-sized Southwest Florida habitats.

For information on events, the Garden expansion and free, pre-registered visit dates throughout the expansion go to www.naplesgarden.org where the Garden is virtually open.

Naples Botanical Garden is in the process of creating a world-class tropical garden paradise that will feature cultivated gardens of Asia, Brazil, the Caribbean, Florida, and a hands-on interactive Children’s Garden along with 90 acres of beautifully restored natural habitats. Currently, the Garden offers pre-registered visitations on specific dates. For more information call 239-643-7275 or visit www.naplesgarden.org, where the Garden is virtually open.
