Help us complete the new Hazel Ruby McQuain Event Center!
Once it is fully operational, the new Hazel Ruby McQuain Event Center and its associated amenities will provide income for the Garden, and an enormous boost to our mission delivery. The sooner we can finish the project, the sooner that will become a reality. Rapidly changing conditions in the construction market have caused unforeseen budget constraints, and we have additional needs for this facility that were not included in the scope of the original grant, including furnishings, audio/visual equipment, and other items.
March-Westin began clearing the area in late spring of 2021. Much of the site and foundation work is now complete, and construction should continue to progress rapidly. We hope to have the facility completed by the summer of 2022.

We are offering the opportunity to show your support and leave your mark on this tremedous project that will change the face of the WVBG forever. For those who donate $3,000 to the project, you will be included on a beautfiully crafted cherry sculpture of the WVBG logo leaf to be displayed prominently in the main event space. For those who donate $500, you will have be included on a legacy paver display outside the main entrance to the building. Details on both displays are illustrated below.
