The Leach Teaching Gardens is the first completed phase of The Gardens at Texas A&M University. It was funded in large part by donor contributions, which meant we needed to give them a very special grand opening event.
The event began with an indoor cocktail reception.
Event programs with attached lapel pins.
Custom lapel pins were attached to the programs for each donor.
The donor preview began inside and was followed by a tour of the gardens.
The party then moved outside for the revealing of the donor wall.
Temporary “walls” were created in order to “reveal” the donor wall.

Finally, the attendees were invited into the gardens for an exclusive preview. They were greeted by students and treated to cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvre throughout the gardens.
Volunteers were used to help hand out programs and welcome donors into the gardens.
Stations were set up throughout the gardens.
Rack cards with information for potential donors were placed throughout the event.
Volunteers and event staff all received custom Gardens t-shirts.
