Bloom Gala Annual Fundraiser

BLOOM ‘22 Moved to September 29, 2022

The Kids First Center announces that the Bloom ’22 gala has been rescheduled for September 29, 2022. Some in our community have expressed a hesitation to return to live indoor events this month. The pandemic has also created unforeseen planning challenges with vendors and supporters. Even though we are emerging from the pandemic, our community is still recovering. We completely understand and have made a choice to be as inclusive of our friends and supporters as possible. As such, we have made the decision to postpone the scheduled June 23, 2022 event to September 29, 2022.

While the event date is being moved, the planning continues, and you can expect a successful and enjoyable gala in the Fall. No one knows what level of health concerns will be with us in September, but the goal has always been to have an event that all can attend without unnecessary risk to health or burden on our business partners.

If you have already bought tickets, thank you! They will be good for the new date. If that date is inconvenient for you, a full refund is also being offered. We will be reaching out to those who have purchased tickets and event sponsors to check in with you. The Host Committee appreciates the great support of Bloom ’22 business partners and event sponsors. Any sponsorship will be transferred to the new date. Please contact the Kids First Center with any questions at (207) 761-2709 or directly with the Executive Director by email at trobbins@kidsfirstcenter.org.

More information about Bloom ’22 will be in your email boxes over the summer. See you in September at Bloom ’22, be well, and have a healthy summer.
