Flower Power was a great success!
On May 13th, we hosted our first-ever and successful Flower Power virtual fundraiser and virtual floral arrangement workshop. Thanks to the fantastic Aurea Sanabria Molaei of Flower Bodega, guests had a chance to learn behind-the-scenes secrets to creating eye-catching and captivating floral arrangements. Everyone had so much fun, and our competitive spirits emerged as we showed off our work.
Thanks to all involved, we raised much-needed funds to help support Mercy Home's Plant-Grow-Give horticultural therapy and organic farming project and help kick off the growing season. Please take a minute to enjoy the photos from the event.
Flower Power was supported by the Fellone Accordino Family Trust.
