Black Tie International:
Dream Foundation's 6th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon


Dream Foundation’s 6th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon Will Raise Funds for Community Program that Delivers Comfort to Thousands of Local Residents


Annual event celebrates dedicated volunteers who assemble and deliver more than 150 fresh bouquets each week throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura County


Santa Barbara, Calif.—Dream Foundation will hold its 6th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon on Thursday, May 19th. Proceeds from the event, which recognizes Flower Empower volunteers, sponsors, and growers, are vital to supporting the program that makes weekly deliveries of beautiful bouquets to those in need. Last year, Flower Empower delivered 7,500 bouquets from Goleta to Ventura.

“Over the past 21 years, the Flower Empower Program has been a tremendous source of happiness in our community,” says Kisa Heyer, Dream Foundation Chief Executive Officer. “We are honored and delighted to spend an afternoon acknowledging those who have been instrumental to its success.” 

The luncheon will be held at the Bates Ranch House, a historic, oceanfront property in Carpinteria, overlooking beautiful Rincon Point. The event will bring the community together for great food, a warm celebration, wonderful surprises, and fabulous auction items all to benefit the Flower Empower Program.


Each week, Flower Empower volunteers create dozens of arrangements using donated flowers and deliver them to hospitals, hospices, cancer centers, and personal residences.  The bouquets are gifts of kindness and compassion to community members in need, including those facing illness, loss or recovery, providing them a gesture of fellowship, joy, and inspiration.


This year’s Flower Empower event will honor and recognize the following individuals:

-          Diane & Tim Brown, 2016 Flower Empower Sponsors

-          Lisa & George Hagerman, 2016 Flower Empower Sponsors

-          Alison Wrigley & Geoffrey Rusack, 2016 Flower Empower Sponsors

-          Nissrin Mahmoud & Bob Fuladi, 2016 Flower Empower Sponsors

-          Yoze Van Wingerden, 2016 Grower of the Year

-          Jan & Jay Anderson, Volunteers of the Year

-          Delaney Werner, Volunteer of the Year


Also in attendance and serving as host, will be NewsChannel3’s Alan Rose. Rose is a long-time, dedicated supporter of Dream Foundation, its mission and programs, including Flower Empower.


Tickets to this event can be purchased online through Dream Foundation’s website for $100 per ticket. Attendance for this popular event is limited to 250 attendees, so the public is encouraged to act fast to take part in this unique


Flower Empower receives no federal or state funding and relies solely on corporate and individual contributions and grants. Dream Foundation hopes its 6th Annual Flower Empower Luncheon  will raise awareness of and support for all of its programs, including Flower Empower.
