Fundraiser for Floral Exhibit Supplies
Yankee Dahlia Society (YDS) is a new dahlia club founded in January 2021 and based in Massachusetts, with members from all over the New England region and beyond. We are a club committed to sharing the joy of growing dahlias with members and the greater community through education and outreach events that promote appreciation for and interest in these beautiful flowers.
YDS is planning to hold our 2nd annual Dahlia Exhibit open to the public on September 30 - October 1, 2023 at Spence Farm @ Hurld Wyman Elementary School in Woburn MA. We will have on display hundreds of beautiful dahlia blooms grown by YDS members and non-members alike for the public to enjoy. In addition, we will have floral design and growing presentations to inspire and educate people to grow and learn more about dahlias.
As a new club just over two years old, we need to purchase floral exhibit supplies and floral containers to provide for our Dahlia Exhibits now and for years to come. We would like our Dahlia Exhibit to be environmentally friendly, and want to use display supplies that can be reused year after year. Since floral foam cannot be reused, recycled or readily composted, YDS has decided to make our Dahlia Exhibit a floral foam free event. Instead, we will use metal floral pin frogs and chicken wire to support our blooms in reusable display containers.
We will need to purchase floral pin frogs, chicken wire and 560 display containers to create a beautiful and educational display of dahlia blooms for all to enjoy now and in the future. The cost for display supplies needed for this year's event is estimated at $2,500.00 and in addition we have projected our annual show expenses at $2,500.00.
Please help us reach our goal of raising $5,000.00 for our bloom display supplies and the 2023 YDS Dahlia Bloom Exhibit expenses. We appreciate your support to help us reach our goal. Thank you for your donation! Be sure to save the date for September 30 - October 1, 2023. We hope to see you at the YDS Dahlia Bloom Exhibit in the fall.
