Summit, NJ: There's a saying, "A wine without soul is merely a beverage." This is so not the case at the upcoming ART in the Garden gala at Reeves-Reed Arboretum. Honorees Ellen and Chip Dickson, who are being saluted for their service to the community and especially the Arboretum, have generously reached into their private cellar to provide all the wines for this year's fundraiser. An international selection of both highly prized red and white varietals will be on the menu for the event. According to Chip Dickson, "there'll never be another wine tasting at the Arboretum like the range and choices we've selected for this marvelous event!"

ART in the Garden, Reeves-Reed Arboretum's eagerly anticipated annual garden party and fundraiser, celebrates the extraordinary contributions of long-time community partners The Summit Garden Club, and The Honorable Ellen Dickson and Chip Dickson. Once again, the event is set for Saturday evening, June 4, from 6 pm to 11 pm. The evening's festivities include a silent as well as live auction, dinning by David Ellis Events, music by The Massive Reggae Band, and dancing to DJ Paul Fessock's World of Rock.....and of course, soulful wine.
