Support America In Bloom For Shot At $5,000

My boss and colleague Delilah Onofrey, a founder and member of America In Bloom (AIB), is selling tickets for AIB's annual raffle at the OFA Short Course. Raffle tickets are $100 apiece, and the minimum to participate is $10 if you enter the fundraiser as part of a group. Three prizes will be drawn, including a grand prize of $5,000. Second place wins $1,000 and third wins $500.

AIB is a national campaign and contest that engages cities directly in planting and beautification efforts and raises awareness about the value of landscaping in public life. In eight years, AIB has engaged more than 170 communities ranging in populations from a few hundred people (Echo, Ore.) to millions (Chicago).

All the proceeds from the fundraiser will be earmarked for marketing activities to get more cities involved in the program and create awareness.
