Land O’Lakes and other generous friends helped sponsor the successful Gala in the Garden on June 23, 2016. The event raised more than $300,000 to benefit the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, including the historic renovation and repair of structures in four of its beautiful gardens.

Ten guests at the Land O’Lakes table enjoyed a mild summer evening’s reception, dinner, and silent auction emceed by KARE11 meteorologist Belinda Jensen. Besides its gardens and collections, the Arboretum is home to the exciting new Tashjian Bee and Pollinator Discovery Center, which opened in September 2016.
