Under a Harvest Moon: A Farm-to-Table Dinner
Sunday, September 27, 2020
COVID-19 Update: The last few months have offered all of us a powerful reminder of the many benefits of spending time in nature, and it has been wonderful to see visitors enjoying these experiences at Powell Gardens once again, as we have gradually reopened to the public with new safety precautions in place. Our focus now is on ensuring that the Gardens can continue to offer a haven for all in the months ahead and for years to come.
Toward that end, we look forward to gathering together this fall – as circumstances allow. We hope you will join us in September and in our ongoing efforts to serve the community as a much-needed place of respite, reflection, healing, and inspiration.
On Sunday, September 27, Powell Gardens will host its annual fundraiser, Under a Harvest Moon. Taking into account current social distancing guidelines, we’ve reimagined the event this year and are excited to introduce a new format: the farm-to-basket gourmet picnic, with table placed around the Heartland Harvest Garden, our beautiful setting for the night.
On behalf of our honorary chairs, Lon and Marcia Lane and Stewart and Emily Lane, I hope you and your friends will join us for this memorable occasion. Sponsors of Under a Harvest Moon provide key funding to enhance the Gardens and the innovative education programs they off for visitors of all ages. Please refer to sponsorship opportunities below.
Guests will enjoy signature cocktails and music in the gardens, a silent auction of one-of-a-kind items, and a gourmet picnic dinner prepared by talented local chefs using produce grown in Powell Gardens’ own Heartland Harvest Garden. Our guides on this culinary journey will be Jill Silva and Kimberly Stern of TEAM SILVA + STERN, two of the most knowledgeable and passionate champions of our local chefs and eateries.
Table seating and basic place settings will be provided; however, guests are also invited to bring their own place settings and décor to enter a friendly contest for the most creative picnicscape, as a nod to honorary chair Lon Lane, known as Kansas City’s “King of the Tablescape.”
