What: Memorial Park Conservancy fundraiser, "Heartwood at Brown."

Where: At the home/design/artful boutique Brown on Ferndale.

The 411: Shop owner Jill Brown completely underwrote the casual cocktail gathering supporting the conservancy's mission to restore, preserve and protect Memorial Park. Her interest in the park was ignited on a recent trip to California where she visited gardens designed by Nelson Byrd Wolz, the landscape architect tapped to re-imagine one of H-Town's most treasured green spaces. As party favors, guests received copies of Wolz's book 

Who: Memorial Park fans included Adele and Lan Bentsen, Annie Amante, Ed Morrow, Mark McKinnon, Shellye Arnold, Nick Butler, Matt Price, Mary McCleary, John Brown, Jan Benjamin and Margot Shaw.
