Stepping Stones Bloom GalaOn September 7th, 2019 we Stepped Forward through 15 Years of Bloom with Stepping Stones. More than 400 guests were dazzled under the stars while they raised support towards Stepping Stones mission. Presented by Huntington, Bloom was held at Greenacres Arts Center in Indian Hill on a beautiful September evening. It was the perfect setting filled with beautiful art, live music, great food, dancing and entertainment.
We can’t thank you enough for being a part of this special occasion. While the total amount raised continues to bloom, we are happy to share that more than $245,000 Net has been raised so far to support Stepping Stones’ programs serving individuals with disabilities. The silent auction was a big hit! $46,000+ was raised from items contributed this year. We are extremely grateful for the generosity and creativity in each donation. Silent auction items ranged from glamorous get-a-way packages to local sports events, home essentials, his and her treat-yourself items, and around the city entertainment packages.
Serving more than 1,100 individuals, it is Stepping Stones’ mission to increase independence, improve lives and promote inclusion. We take pride in being a place where everyone can bloom – especially people with disabilities.
With all the excitement from Bloom, you might have missed our Bloom intro video. Enjoy Stepping Forward Through 15 Years Of Bloom!
