On Oct. 18, Old Westbury Gardens hosted its annual Children in Bloom Luncheon, celebrating its 10th anniversary at Orchard Hill in Old Westbury. The theme was Diamonds Are Forever and the event honored Arlene Levine, a founding member of the Children in Bloom Council and a major philanthropist.
The guest speaker was Manda Kalimian, founder of the CANA Foundation, which works to help the large-scale conservation efforts aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas of horses that are displaced across the United States.
Money raised from the luncheon supports the educational and environmental children’s programs at Old Westbury Gardens and help children of underserved schools.
All children have the opportunity to experience the many programs offered.
