Once it is fully operational,
the new Hazel Ruby McQuain Event Center and its associated amenities will
provide income for the Garden, and an enormous boost to our mission delivery.
The sooner we can finish the project, the sooner that will become a reality.
Rapidly changing conditions in the construction market have caused unforeseen
budget constraints, and we have additional needs for this facility that were
not included in the scope of the original grant, including furnishings,
audio/visual equipment, and other items.
