Girls Inc. of Carpinteria will host its 2nd annual fall fundraiser An Evening in Bloom on Saturday, October 18 from 6–11 p.m. at Westerlay Orchids, 3504 Via Real in Carpinteria.
The gala honors local flower-growers with deep roots in community involvement, Ed Van Wingerden, owner of Ever-Bloom, and Win Van Wingerden, owner of Maximum Nursery and an honorary member of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria’s board of trustees. The honorees are both longtime supporters of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria and also served as auctioneers at last year’s Evening in Bloom.
Girls Inc. of Carpinteria currently serves more than 700 girls ages 5-18 each year through a variety of programs, motivating them to take risks and master physical, intellectual and emotional challenges.
The glamorous gala will feature a red carpet entrance, followed by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, dinner buffet, hosted bar, live and silent auctions, local art displays, and dancing to live entertainment.
