The Board of Directors invites you to a fun and festive afternoon in support of Pacific Bonsai Museum in an unparalleled location. Enjoy stunning bonsai, hear live entertainment, cheers to friends with delicious bites & libations, and participate in a stirring paddle raise, all in celebration of the first 34 years of Pacific Bonsai Museum’s collection.

For your enjoyment, Branch Out will feature:

> Jazz music performed by the Michael Glynn Trio
