Milwaukee, WI – March 9, 2018 – On March 13, Flowers for Dreams, an online flower delivery service specializing in locally crafted, artisan bouquets, together with Milwaukee Public Market will host a build-your-own mini bouquet open house event for families to support Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. Each bouquet made will be delivered to a Make-A-Wish family in the Milwaukee area.

Participants of all ages will learn how to build their own mini bouquet from Flowers for Dreams designers, and handwrite a personal message to share with Make-A-Wish children and families. The event marks Flowers for Dreams’ final days as a pop-up vendor at Milwaukee Public Market.

“We are proud to partner with Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, which does inspiring and transformative work in our area,” said Lindsay Leinenkugel, Flowers for Dreams Marketing Manager. “We, along with Milwaukee Public Market, hope that these bouquets made with love and care will spread smiles to local children and their families.”

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin is Flowers for Dreams’ March Charity of the Month. As part of the company’s unique business model grounded in giving back to those in need, Charities of the Month will receive 25 percent of all profits netted from 2018 flower sales.

“Partners like Flowers for Dreams transform the lives of Wisconsin children with critical illnesses by helping grant wishes that are awe-inspiring, uplifting and everlasting. We are so very grateful for this partnership and the impact it will make on local families,” said Make-A-Wish Community Outreach Coordinator, Kelsey Rice.
