9th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon

May 16, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

| $150.00

PURCHASE TICKETS HERE

The 9th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon will be held Thursday, May 16, 2019 at a lovely Spanish style Hope Ranch home with sweeping views of the mountains and city. Our Luncheon will be served under the trees in a beautifully landscaped garden and will feature a poolside silent auction with a dazzling array of one-of-a-kind experiences and items as well as our exciting live auction.

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.

Tickets for the event are $150 per ticket, and can be purchased here.
(Contributions in excess of $50.00 per ticket are tax deductible; Tax ID# 77-0405779)
