ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- For the third year, the Heathcote Botanical Gardens is opening its gates for the Bonsai Ball, scheduled to be held at the gardens in Fort Pierce.

There, guests will have a chance to see the largest public display of Bonsai trees in the United States.

More than 100 trees make up the James J. Smith Bonsai Gallery, a special garden designed and built to house the trees. The gallery is named after Mr. Smith, a Bonsai master living in Vero Beach, who made the generous donation to the gardens in 2011.

"There will be awesome entertainment, a live and silent auction, scrumptious food with an Asian flare and more," said Cynthia Warren, executive director of Heathcote Botanical Gardens. "This celebration recognizes Mr. Smith and the Bonsai gallery."

The Taiko drummer will be back and there will be a karate demonstration as well.

A specialty cake from the Cake Lady from downtown Fort Pierce will be one of the many highlights of the evening.

Tickets for the ball are $75 per person. For more information, call (772) 464-4672 or visit www.heathcotebotanicalgardens.org.
