Bloomington Kiwanis Mother’s Day Flower Sale is now a tradition, with this being its 14th 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 tents are 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 9:00am-7:00pm on Wednesday, May 10, Thursday, May 11, Friday, May 12, and 9:00am-2:00pm on Saturday, May 13. 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. 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 more than 60 eight to ten-year-olds who have been identified as children who would benefit from a camping experience, to Camp Limberlost at Timber Pointe 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, and individual donations.
