The evening will honor longtime friends of the Garden, Judy and Michael Steinhardt alongside Mitsubishi Corporation (Americas) and its President and CEO, Mr. Hidemoto Mizuhara, for their important contributions to NYBG.

Guests are invited to enjoy sake tastings and traditional Japanese music while touring a stunning display of Japanese fall flowers in the iconic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. The night continues in the beautifully redesigned Garden Terrace Room for an elegant dinner.
