Vail Daily letter: Successful event

Betty Ford Alpine is a small botanical garden with a big job — to better understand alpine plants and our beautiful mountain environment and share that knowledge with the tens of thousands of guests each year. We are taking steps to ensure the plants that make up this environment are conserved for generations to come. On Monday we celebrated all those who support the gardens with the annual Breakfast in the Gardens. This year we were privileged to partner with Nina McLemore to showcase her summer collection with a fashion show. Thank you to all who helped make it a success! Special thanks to our models: Donna Giordano, Betty Janik, Nanette Kuich, Amanda Precourt, Barbara Scrivens, Beth Slifer and Debbie Webster. Alpenrose and North Side Cafe provided delicious pastries with additional support from City Market and Costco. From now through July 4, Nina McLemore will donate 15 percent of any sales back to the gardens when they mention Betty Ford Alpine Gardens. Thank you Nina for this very generous gift. To schedule a fitting, call Nina McLemore at 970-476-4809. Thank you again.

Development director, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens
