The annual Friends of the Arboretum (FOA) Members Party, Raffle, and Silent Auction will be held Saturday, October 1, 2016, 4:30 - 7 p.m., on the grounds of the New Hanover County Arboretum at 6206 Oleander Drive in Wilmington. Enjoy a cocktail reception, hearty hor d'oeuvres, electronic bidding on silent auction items, and a raffle.

For the first time, the Silent Auction is open to the public online starting one week before the event. You can bid online and buy items without attending the members party. If you'd like to attend the event you can join the FOA and return to this website to purchase tickets.
Tickets for the Members Party are $21 online (includes an online service fee) and $25 at the door. There is no charge for artists, but artists' guest must buy tickets.
The New Hanover County Arboretum is a place of inspiration and education. Its abundant
gardens, tranquil fountains and whimsical sculptures inspire creativity and a love of
nature. Beyond their beauty, the gardens teach visitors about our region’s ecosystems and
sustainable gardening practices.
Our Mission: To provide Coastal Carolina with a resource center for horticultural research, education, leadership development, and environmental and aesthetic appreciation.
