Nearly 600 guests attended the Garden Party on Sunday. Held at Meadow Brook Hall, this year’s food was probably the best it has ever been, including an impressive shrimp display from Joe Muer, Red Coat burgers, and a unique panna cotta from Bistro 82. And although the weather was 90 and sunny all day, the women made outstanding fashion statements as the male guests enjoyed cigars by the classic car display. Olivia Millerschin, a Rochester Hills native who was a finalist on America’s Got Talent, performed in the Pegasus garden throughout the afternoon. Also new this year, guests were allowed to explore the first floor of the house and learn about its history, in addition to TapSnap service where guests were able to take photos and create GIFs in front of the fountain. Over $150,000 was raised for Oakland Community College’s professional trades.
