Flower Duet’s Charitable Giving
Each year we are asked to sponsor a multitude of events through flowers. One of our favorite charitable giving projects is to help our local schools and school districts to raise money for children’s programs and supporting young adults.
This annual school fundraiser for the school where my twins attended was for the PTA to help fund projects like art in the classroom, garden lessons, classroom supplies, chromebooks and other technology, books and more. During last year’s PTA fundraiser (Flower Duet provided the flowers at a significant discount), the school raised enough funds to erect two giant shade structures for lunch-time dining outdoors.
Awards Ceremony Flowers & Everyday Design Donations
We’ve provided flowers to the twins’ school fundraisers, awards ceremonies and other events at reduced fees in order to help the school achieve its fiscal goals. In addition to volunteering as an art docent and garden docent, I also chaired a scholarship program at the school for three years.
With the leftover flowers we had from events, I would make fresh bouquets and bring them to the front office staff to help brighten their days and the days of everyone who entered the school. For any local florist who has young kids in school, this is a great way to forge a friendship with school staff. I know!
Flower Duet was pleased to once again to be tapped to help the school raise funds (even though my kids are in middle school now). Here are some photos from the event setup. The theme was Miami Vice so we did tall tropical designs highlighted with pink and orange flowers. We thought it matched the event theme perfectly!
