Oh, what a night! There was fantastic weather, live music from Trifecta and our guest DJ, excellent food and drinks, an extensive array of raffle items, and so many friends.

Flower Power

May 2021

A beautiful day called for beautiful flowers and Flower Bodega delivered. We hosted our first hybrid Flower Power fundraiser for Mercy Home and Plant-Grow-Give. Thanks to the fantastic Aurea Sanabria Molaei people at home and guests that joined us in person had a chance to learn how professionals create eye-catching and captivating floral arrangements. Everyone had so much fun, and our competitive spirits emerged as we showed off our work.

 

We raised over $10,000 to help support Mercy Home and Plant-Grow-Give's horticultural therapy and organic farming project and help kick off the growing season. Please take a minute to enjoy the photos from the event.
