Celebrating their 18th Annual Winter Wonderland Ball last Friday, December 9, 2016, the New York Botanical Garden gathered over 400 guests who all together, raised over $300,000 for the New York Botanical Garden’s Children’s Educational Programming. Guests dressed in their holiday attire and enjoyed cocktails followed by dinner and dancing in the spectacular Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. On view in the Conservatory was the 25th annual Holiday Train Show®—an exhibition of magnificent model trains winding through a sprawling landscape in miniature, featuring iconic New York landmarks made of natural materials.
