America in Bloom (AIB), a group that promotes nationwide beautification through education and community involvement by encouraging the use of flowers, plants, trees, and other environmental and lifestyle enhancements, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. As a build-up to its 15th Symposium and Awards Celebration, taking place Oct. 6-8 in Arroyo Grande, CA, the group has launched a three-week fundraising effort.
Specifically, AIB is looking for individual donations of $115 to help the organization reach its landmark goal of $115,000 in new funds to advance the AIB mission to create vibrant communities across the country.
“America in Bloom helps the entire ornamental horticulture industry (floriculture, turf, and nursery) as we grow the market one city at a time,” says AIB Treasurer and Past President Marvin Miller of Ball Horticultural Co. “We’ve been doing this successfully for 15 years!”
Those who join this special crowdfunding effort by September 15 will be includes in AIB’s 15th Anniversary Symposium & Awards Program Celebration brochure and in all related post-Symposium publicity.
