Diamonds Are Forever was the theme when Old Westbury Gardens hosted its 10th Anniversary Children in Bloom Luncheon at Orchard Hill in Old Westbury on Oct. 18.

The honoree was Arlene Levine, a founding member of the Children in Bloom Council and a major philanthropist. The monies raised from the luncheon support the educational and environmental childrens’ programs at the Gardens and help children of underserved schools and all children have the opportunity to experience the many programs offered.

The guest speaker was Manda Kalimian, founder of the CANA Foundation, which works to help rewilding of horses that are displaced across the United States.
