Bloomington Kiwanis Mother’s Day Flower Sale


Bloomington Kiwanis Mother’s Day Flower Sale is now a tradition, with this being its 9th annual sale and largest fundraiser. The club holds this event every Mother’s Day weekend, selling thousands of flowers and plants to the community. As always, their white tents are located between Yankee Candle and Ann Taylor Loft at the Shoppes at College Hills, offering a host of annuals, herbs, vegetable garden plants, and hanging and potted plants.

This year the Mother’s Day Flower Sale fundraising event is from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Wednesday, May 9, Thursday, May 10, Friday, May 11, and Saturday, May 12. The sale is closed on Sunday, Mother’s Day, in honor of our mothers.

The flowers are provided by fundraising partner, Wendell Niepagen Greenhouses, with a wide selection of quality annuals, herbs and vegetable garden plants. Lovely hanging baskets and large planted pots make perfect Mother’s Day gifts. A popular feature of the Mother’s Day Flower Sale is the Master Gardeners on site, local experts to help advise shoppers and to share tips on how to plant pots, how to pick the right plant for light and soil conditions, and more.

Kiwanis members set up, care for, and assist shoppers with the sale of the plants. The sale raises funds for its main signature service project, Camp Limberlost, originally started by The Pantagraph. Proceeds from the sale go to helping local deserving children go to camp, as well as other local children’s projects. Each summer, since 1931, Bloomington Kiwanis sends over 100 eight to ten-year-olds who have been identified as children who would benefit from a camping experience, to Camp Limberlost at East Bay Camp at Lake Bloomington. The club’s mission focusing on children is supported by fundraisers throughout the year including Mother’s Day Flower Sale, Pancake Days, cheese sales, and individual donations.

The Bloomington Kiwanis Club was formed in 1921 and has had many local community and business leaders as members and officers through the years. It is part of Kiwanis International, a service organization whose mission is to change the world, one community and one child at a time. The Club meets every Monday at noon for one hour at Biaggi’s off Veterans Parkway in Bloomington. Lunch and a program are included at each meeting.
