Robinson Gardens Celebrates “Moonlight & Roses”
The night could not have been more perfect at this year’s Robinson Gardens Patron Gala.
Held on a warm summer night last Saturday beneath twinkling lights on the lawn outside Beverly Hills first mansion, over 150 people were in attendance, having fun and raising money for this important cultural landmark which serves over 2,100 students every year. For this year’s gala, held to the theme “Moonlight and Roses” in honor of Virginia Robinson’s favorite flower and the evening light that illuminates the mansion’s sprawling botanical gardens, the Friends of Robinson Gardens honored Courier Publisher/President Marcia Wilson Hobbs with the Spirit of Beverly Hills Award and Virginia Robinson Gardens Superintendent Timothy L. Lindsay with the Garden Champion Award. “I hope you will all do the best you can to preserve this treasure,” Hobbs said upon accepting the award. The spectacular evening was chaired by Patti Reinstein, Julia Klein, and Kerstin Royce. Photos by Lee Salem Photography
