Time to dust off those stunning statement hats and join us at Huntsville Botanical Garden for the 10th Annual Spring Hat Luncheon! This much-loved event is set to unfold in the grandeur of the Isenberg Grand Hall on Thursday, May 9, 2023, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., promising an afternoon of elegance, philanthropy, and community spirit.

Individual Tickets $150; Table for Eight $1,500

Our cherished springtime gala is not just any luncheon; it’s an experience woven with delightful cocktails, the thrill of a silent auction, and a gourmet meal prepared by the renowned Grille on Main. The highlight? A special program and book signing session with the esteemed floral artist, Cathy B. Graham, whose creations inspire awe and admiration.

Your participation shines a light on the invaluable work of the Huntsville Botanical Garden’s Butterfly Program, with all proceeds directly supporting this cause. This event is a testament to the power of community and the shared commitment to nurturing the natural beauty and ecological diversity of our beloved Garden.

The Spring Hat Luncheon is an affair that consistently captivates and fills up swiftly. Secure your spot by reserving individual tickets or a table for your party. Please be advised that individual seats will be allocated, and specific party seating requests can only be fulfilled with a reserved table.

For those who cannot attend but wish to contribute to the Garden’s flourishing future, we welcome donations with open hearts. Every gesture of support helps us sustain and expand our programs, making a world of difference.

Prepare for an unforgettable afternoon where fashion, flora, and philanthropy come together in perfect harmony. We look forward to celebrating this spectacular occasion with you, adorned in your finest hats, in the spirit of spring and solidarity.

As a special add-on treat this year, guests have the opportunity to purchase a live butterfly and release it into the Purdy Butterfly House after the luncheon. For your convenience, you can pre-purchase a butterfly release opportunity when you buy your event tickets, or you can purchase at the luncheon.

Can’t attend but you want to contribute to the cause? Purchase a butterfly release now and we will release it on your behalf. Thank you in advance for supporting Huntsville Botanical Garden’s butterfly program!
