Our biggest fundraising event of the year has a slightly different face this year!  We are unable to gather for drinks, dinner, and music in the Garden and very sad that we will miss seeing you all, but we still have an excellent array of auction items from all our favorite vendors and we need your support this year more than ever!  Proceeds support daily operations and maintenance of the West Virginia Botanic Garden at Tibbs Run Preserve, as well as the implementation of our Master Plan

This year’s event will feature an online auction, and you can bid on items starting August 4th and ending on August 16th.  We’ve done our best to make the online bidding as streamlined as possible with the help of Joe R. Pyle Auctioneers!


Auction begins August 4th

and ends August 16th
