|Friends of the Discovery Center at Murfree Spring will hold its annual Secret Garden Party at 7 p.m. Friday, June 3 at the home of Jan and Britt Mioton, located at 1523 Mirabella Way in Murfreesboro.
The Miotons’ lush garden sanctuary will entice guests and magically transport them to New Orleans for “A Night in the French Quarter”. The delights of authentic French Quarter cuisine and signature cocktails will be served under the stars, while silent and live auctions promise to offer items sure to spark bidding wars.
Proceeds from the Secret Garden Party will support educational programs and exciting hands-on exhibits at The Discovery Center, where more than 130,000 visitors come each year. The party precedes the Secret Garden Tour set for the following day, June 4th; for only $10 per person, ticket holders will tour featured gardens in Riverbend, Indian Hills and downtown Murfreesboro.
