Blooms for Africa Fundraising Events
Past Events and Outcome:
We had a very enthusiastic response to our first historical walk in Dundas, three groups of 15 masked and socially distanced participants were regaled by our knowegeable and entertaining guide Stan Nowak with fascinating stories about the history and goings on in different buildings and houses in Dundas as well as the hsitory of the Dundas Driving park.
Our Virtual Walk (isn’t everything these days!) for Stride to Turn the Tide in May raised funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, supporting community organizations and our African grandmothers, now faced with the COVID 19 virus threat on top of the continuing challenges presented by HIV & AIDS.
We have had a great response from our team ‘Blooms Walkin’ to Uganda’, who have risen to the challenge to continue our fundraising efforts as this was something we could do while social distancing. A big thank you to our team and to all who sponsored us – we have raised a record $20,545.00 this year!
Unfortunately the Cello extravangza had to be cancelled due to the COVID 19 restrictions on gatherings. It is hoped to present this wonderful event at a later date. Once restrictions have been removed and we have been able to reorganize the event will be posted here.
