Bouquets of the Heart

Our thanks to YOU!
2nd Annual Bouquets of the Heart Update

On Friday, October 27th, over 300 guests gathered at The Multnomah Athletic Club to celebrate the mission and vision of The Bloom Project. More than $105,000 was raised to support the organization’s efforts to provide the gift of fresh flowers to hospice and palliative care patients on a weekly basis. Monies raised from this event will be stewarded towards the purchase of supplies and equipment for our operations and to build capacity for our team by hiring an executive director to provide oversight, leadership and fundraising efforts as we continue to grow and share The Bloom Project within the Portland Metro area and beyond!

The Bloom Project is celebrating its 10th anniversary during November 2017! A timely celebration as we focus on National Hospice and Palliative Care month, our “Give Back to the Giver” initiative (November 6-10, flowers were gifted to social workers, nurses, chaplains and volunteers within our partner hospice organizations) and our volunteer appreciation event.

Thank you for your passion and support for The Bloom Project! YOU have made a difference in the lives of others through your donation of financial support, time, products and services.

With Gratitude,

Heidi & The Bloom Project Team
