Guests gathered on the lawn of the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum for the 14th annual Green Thumb Gala. Attendees enjoyed cocktails and dinner al fresco, as well as a silent auction with many garden-themed items. Afterwards, a lively live auction occurred. Guests danced through the night, enjoying the cooling fall weather. All funds raised at the Green Thumb Gala will go in support of their mission of growing gardens, honoring history and cultivating community.
