For the year 2015, the chosen projects for our beneficiaries are:
* iPads, computers, smartboards, and software to enhance communication with children with neurological disorders (HMS SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN WITH CEREBRAL PALSY)
* Fulfilling requests and special treats for critically ill children and those in shelters (LITTLE SMILES PA)
In addition, at the Flower Market, we give space to other worthy youth nonprofits as well as prior beneficiaries to exhibit in our children’s Resource Center. This year’s Garden Party (major fundraiser and prelude to the Market) is scheduled for April 19, 2015 and our Happy Hour (more casual event) will be held May 27, 2015. If you would like to participate in any of the activities of the Rittenhouse Square Flower Market for Children’s Charities, become a corporate or community partner, make in-kind or monetary donations to the Market, rent a food or floral booth at the Market or sponsor another booth, become a member of our board, volunteer at the Market, or if you know of a nonprofit children’s health and welfare organization that would like to apply to be a future beneficiary, please email us at RSFMA@aol.com. You may also donate to us through the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania (Code #45931)
Finally, we invite everyone to come to the Square on May 6-7, 2015 between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and enjoy the flowers, food, featured entertainment, and fun, as we celebrate Flower Market 101: A New Beginning.
We’d like to announce our “Hopscotch Challenge”
Here’s how it works: Play a round of hopscotch at your closest hopscotch court, or draw your own, donate here on our website, and challenge your friends to do so! You can also play hopscotch at the Flower Market itself on May 6 and 7 and donate in person.
