1st Annual Volunteer Celebration at Terrace on the Green

Thank you to all of the volunteers, sponsors and donors who have supported Blossoms of Hope this year!  Without you, we would not have been able to donate to both the Claudia Mayer Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center (CMTBCRC) AND the Ellicott City Partnership (ECP).

We held our 1st Annual Volunteer Celebration at Terrace on the Green in Turf Valley on Monday, October 10th.  Our volunteers and sponsors have given so much to Blossoms, we wanted to thank them and recognize their efforts.   During the Celebration, appetizers, drinks and conversations flowed.  It was an enjoyable way to look back at our many 2016 events!  Our chair, Joe Barbera, walked us through the events and hard work to make each event a success.
