On Friday, April 29, The Bloom Project will hold its annual Bouquets of the Heart fundraising luncheon at the Bend Golf Club. Work from local artists will be on display and floral designers will create their interpretations of the pieces using flowers. Funds raised during the luncheon will be used to support operational expenses and programs fulfilling the mission of The Bloom Project.
The Bloom Project is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides fresh floral bouquets to hospice and palliative care patients. With two locations – in Bend and Portland, Ore. – The Bloom Project receives its donations from wholesale floral companies, growers and local grocery stores. The flowers are repurposed by volunteers into beautiful bouquets ready to deliver to local hospice and palliative care patients.
