Filoli's Pacific Paradise Gala was held on Friday, September 7, 2018. The gala honored Filoli’s connection to the Pacific Isles with a heritage driven dinner in the Garden. The Pacific Paradise Gala featured fresh ingredients sourced from local farms, ranches, and Filoli’s own orchards with a menu designed by Chef Ravi Kapur of Liholiho Yacht Club and executed by Taste Catering. The event was held in Filoli's beautiful 16-acre formal gardens with tropical-themed music by the Alcatraz Islanders and a flower posey making station led by Filoli's floral volunteers. The gala auction featured unique Filoli experiences, such as an exclusive pool party and murder mystery dinner, and a fund-a-need to raise money for Filoli's education programs for local youth.
