The Water Conservation Garden invites you to our annual Perennial Party. As The Garden’s main fundraising event of the year, Perennial Party, supports core programs in environmental education, water conservation, and horticulture.

“Fundraising is critical to the success of an organization for so many reasons. The obvious one is securing the financial future of The Water Conservation Garden to expand the impact and reach of water conservation education further into the San Diego Community. But it’s more than just that, this fundraiser will strengthen relationships and support, raise awareness about the importance and ease of conserving water, provide recognition of our donors and sponsors, expand our donor base, and pave the foundation for other forms of fundraising and engagement. Most importantly it’s a Party with a Purpose that will bring the community together to have fun, dance, and enjoy a taste of San Diego.” expressed Jennifer Pillsbury, Executive Director and CEO.

Surrounded by nearly 6-acres of beautiful drought-tolerant landscaping, guests will enjoy beautifully themed, eye-catching exhibits featuring “more beauty, less water.” Guest are invited to wear their best dressy casual attire, listen to music performances, and enjoy a seasonal taste of San Diego including bites from Four Seasons Foods Catering

Live music at The Garden! From beautiful ceremony ballads to the frenetic beats of the last dance, Shades of Blue knows how to create the right moments for every part of the Perennial Party.
