10th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon

June 25 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

 

We want to let you know about Dream Foundation’s response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation with our continued focus on guarding the safety and well-being of our supporters and the community we love.

In order to protect our staff, volunteers and recipients, we’ve made the very sad and difficult decision to suspend the Flower Empower program for the moment. That means that until further notice, we won’t be meeting to make bouquets and deliver them throughout Santa Barbara County. We will resume deliveries as soon as it is safe to do so.

Our 10th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon will take place on June 25th at the Rockwood Women’s Club, and not May 21st as originally planned. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented situation, and we send you all of our best wishes at this difficult time.

The 10th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon will be held Thursday, June 25, 2020, at the historic Rockwood Women’s Club, a secluded architectural jewel hidden amongst the giant oaks and lush greenery of beautiful Mission Canyon. A silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and items will provide plenty of opportunities to treat yourself or someone you love.

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 hospices, cancer centers and personal residences. In addition to abundant bouquets, flower recipients enjoy freshly baked cookies, fine chocolates and handmade cards.


The event will honor the dedicated donors, volunteers and flower professionals that make the program possible.

Please remember your flats, hats and wraps.

(Contributions in excess of $50.00 per ticket are tax deductible; Tax ID# 77-0405779)
