Supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation
Here at Bloom College we treasure the support we are able to offer causes close to our hearts. With that in mind, we were so thrilled to be able to assist the National Breast Cancer Foundation recently with their Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
It was the largest Pink Ribbon Breakfast held throughout the 2014 Australian campaign, and with Bloom College’s help it was an outstanding success for them. They were able to donate $82,000.00 to assist the National Breast Cancer Foundation achieve its goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
The Breakfast was held on Thursday 23rd October 2014, and Bloom College donated table arrangements made by our students. The arrangements were lovingly handcrafted by those who attended one of our workshops held every hour (on the hour) across 2 days and 2 locations – Geelong and Albert Park. Students donated $20 and an hour of their time, in which they also learnt other handy floristry tips and advice.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation were thrilled with their table arrangements, and said that they “made a beautiful addition to the ambience of the room”.
