The Prelude

Teddy Abrams, Ben Sollee and artists from the Louisville Ballet helped kick off The Prelude, an event to raise funds for the future home of Louisville’s Botanical Gardens at 1410 N. Frankfort Avenue on the evening of June 5. Guests enjoyed festive libations and farm-to-table hor d’oeurves by Atria Hospitality as they basked in the natural beauty of the site.
