PROVIDENCE – The Roger Williams Park Botanical Center’s Love in Bloom benefit gala opening has been rescheduled from Wednesday, February 13 at 6 p.m. to Wednesday, March 7 at 6 p.m. due to the upcoming snowstorm.

Invited guests have been encouraged to wear something red as they get a sneak preview of the largest indoor public display garden in New England and enjoy a tropical evening in the middle of February.

The 12,000 square foot facility, which is scheduled to open to the public on March 2, 2007, houses a colorful array of exotic flowers, rare plants, waterfalls and unique exhibits.
