San Diego Botanical Gardens Gala
Every year in September the San Diego Botanical Gardens in Encinitas hold a fund raiser. The internationally acclaimed florist, Rene Van Rims, helps coordinate a team of volunteers that create centerpieces for the reception and whimsical arrangements to fill to the garden that are sold to raise money. I have found that volunteering is a great way to build your skill set and meet some really great people in the industry. The pictures below are from the 2012 gala.
