There is an organization within Santa Barbara which delivers floral bouquets, fresh-baked cookies, fine chocolates and cards hand-made by school children to those in hospitals, hospices, cancer centers and caring homes every week. Since 1994, the program has made over 173,000 deliveries.
A tribute to the many people who make this altruistic dream a reality, Dream Foundation’s 7th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon takes place on May 18 at Klentner Ranch, a beautiful and rustic polo ranch in Carpinteria. The event brings together the generous supporters and volunteers, and raises funds to continue the establishment’s work in delivering kindness and compassion to those in need through the Flower Empower program (A program of Dream Foundation).
“Flower Empower has been an invaluable program for our community and is one of many programs that benefits Dream Foundation and helps fulfill our dream-granting mission,” says Dream Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, Kisa Heyer. “It’s incredibly heartwarming to witness the profound effect of such a seemingly small gesture.”
Tickets to the Flower Empower Luncheon can be purchased through Dream Foundation’s website. Raffle tickets are also available through the website, the grand prize culminating in a seven-day Holland America Line Caribbean cruise for two, in an ocean view stateroom. Sponsorships and donations are also available. Dream Foundation’s celebration, lunch and fundraiser will take place from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. at 3300 Via Real, Carpinteria.
