Here are some handy things to know about the Blooming Bash

  • At our last Bash, 160 guests attended and we raised almost $17,000. We hope to increase both of those numbers this year!
  • Everyone is invited! Please don’t let cost be an obstacle; contact our committee and we’ll work with you.
  • This is a fundraising event; there’s no getting around that. However, we really aim to put the “fun” in fundraising by having games by City of Play, casual dress, refreshments by Mad Mex and great music by our own Mr. R.! Fundraising opportunities at the event will start at $5.

We really hope that you will support the Blooming Bash. We can’t wait to reach our fundraising goal and bring the Lower School Beautification Project to reality! Most of all, we really want you to attend the event! The PCO strives to build strong community connections and welcomes everyone to be involved! Questions or ideas? Contact bloomingbash@ecspco.org.
