It’s no longer a secret: Dallas has become one of the hottest places in the country to live. And raise a family, do business, get cultured, enjoy good food… The list goes on. It also has primo latitude/longitude and average temperature going for it. This makes it an ideal locale for a year-round outdoor gathering place for folks from all walks of life. One like, say… the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.
We are fortunate, as a city, to have this horticultural heaven along the southeastern shoreline of White Rock Lake, overlooking downtown Dallas. And we are honored, as a company, to financially support the Dallas Arboretum as they provide us with incredible beauty throughout the seasons.
Last night, the Arboretum feted its corporate sponsors at a special evening on the grounds, amidst the breathtaking display that is Dallas Blooms. And we dispatched 10 agents there to receive the appreciation on our behalf.
As corporate sponsors, we’re grateful to have the opportunity to help produce and promote the following special events throughout the year:
DALLAS BLOOMS BRONZE EXHIBIT: Bringing the intricate, lifelike bronze-works of Gary Lee Price to the gardens, is one of our favorite sponsored events this spring. A fellow of the National Sculpture Society, Price has been recognized worldwide for his work uplifting the human spirit. This year during Dallas Blooms — the largest floral festival in the Southwest — his exhibit called “The Great Contributors” complements the overall annual theme, ”The Artistry in Nature.” Nine bronze statues, including such notable thinkers as Abraham Lincoln, Claude Monet and The Wright Brothers, are on display throughout the garden. All around them the grounds explode with 100 kinds of spring bulbs, totaling 500,000 blooms. The exhibit is on display now through November 27, 2016.
MEMBER EASTER EGG HUNTS: Families appreciate the four opportunities on two consecutive weekends in March (March 18-19 & 25-26) to fill baskets and make memories. It makes us very proud to provide the consummate spring backdrop for photos of the little ones in their Easter best!
AUTUMN AT THE ARBORETUM: September 17 heralds that long-awaited time of year when we transition from longer, hotter summer days to shorter, cooler fall ones, complete with a pumpkin patch and the inimitable Pumpkin Village.
