Les Chapeaux dans le Jardin
On September 24, the rescheduled 20th Anniversary of Les Chapeaux dans le Jardin (Hat Day) took place at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. More than 450 guests attended the luncheon which honored Nancy Cardenas was as the Ann Isaly Wolf honoree, an annual award that recognizes individuals who have embodied and fostered the Conservatory’s growth as a cultural institution.
Under the leadership of co-chairs Ann Isaly Wolfe and her daughter, Katie Wolfe Lloyd, the afternoon raised more than $500,000 to benefit the Conservatory’s Pre-K and K-12 education programs. These programs blend the Conservatory’s unique resources with hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences, cultivating a connection between youth and nature. During the event, Nicole Henry entertained the crowd with a fabulous set paying tribute to the music of Whitney Houston. Sponsors of the 20th anniversary Hat Day include The Davis Foundation, Wolfe Associates Inc., and Leslie & Abigail Wexner.
