7th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon
May 18 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm| $125
The 7th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon will be held Thursday, May 18th at the Klentner Ranch, a rustic and elegant polo ranch conveniently nestled in the foothills of Carpinteria overlooking horse barns, paddocks, the Santa Barbara Polo Club and the mighty Pacific Ocean.
The luncheon will feature exquisite ocean and mountain views, delectable lunch by Rincon Catering, silent auction and raffle. This annual event will raise funds for Flower Empower, a volunteer-driven program that delivers hope and compassion—in the form of beautiful bouquets—to those in need. Several days each week, groups of volunteers prepare dozens of arrangements using donated flowers, and then make deliveries to hospitals, hospices, cancer centers and personal residences. In addition to abundant bouquets, flower recipients enjoy fresh-baked cookies, fine chocolates and cards hand made by school children.
The event will honor the dedicated donors, volunteers and community growers that make the program possible.
Tickets for the event are $125 per ticket, and can be purchased here.
