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 first free Dahlia Exhibit open to the public on October 1-2, 2022 at the Westwood Public Library in Westwood 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 one year 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 this 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 anticipate needing to purchase 504 floral pin frogs and 574 display containers to create a beautiful and educational display of dahlia blooms for all to enjoy now and in the future.

Please help us reach our goal of raising $2,500.00 for our bloom display supplies. We appreciate your support to help us reach our goal. Thank you for your donation!
