In addition to the fashion show and fine art exhibition, a swing band and dancing will be held on the amphitheater stage.

Attendees can expect an elegant evening with a 1940s old Hollywood feel that showcases the beauty of the gardens, she said. Guests will receive a program with a map to guide them to the food, art and fashion show.
