Musicians Jimmy Patton and Enrique Platas were spectacular at the Triton Garden Gallery benefit for Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center this past Sunday. Rising star Ella Shreiner added to the entertainment with her special cameo performance and outstanding vocals. Chefs Brandon Brooks and Lhasa Landry outdid themselves with a delectable four course tasting menu that guests enjoyed. And vividly colored canvasses by Artist Donna Butnik’s rounded out the day. Thanks to all of the participants and attendees who came out to support Director Healy Vigderson and Development Assistant Claire Greener of Olivewood Gardens in their efforts to teach the San Diego community at large about organic sustainable food and farming practices.
