What: Garden Party

Where: Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum

The lowdown: Austinites gathered to toast the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum during the 2017 Garden Party, a favorite spring affair. Guests were treated to bites from 25 area restaurants, sips from a vast selection of wines curated by Twin Liquors (including an all-rosé bar), and tunes from the Nash Hernandez Orchestra.

Also on the scene was Food Network, which filmed the unveiling of a custom, Umlauf-inspired creation from Austin-based Sideserf Cake Studio, star of the show Texas Cake House. The event featured a live and silent auction full of exclusive offerings, and it raised over $300,000 for the Umlauf.
