Temple Ambler in Bloom, the Ambler Arboretum's Annual Garden Party Fundraiser, is going virtual this year! That's right, this means if you have wanted to participate in supporting the Ambler Arboretum but have thought it was too far away, you have no excuse this year! You can tune into our program from anywhere and celebrate with us.
Unpack your Bloom Box, which you can choose as part of your registration, and enjoy your light refreshments and adult beverage around a beautiful centerpiece. No need to get all dressed up but, if you like, you can even put on your custom Ambler in Bloom face masks for the occasion. Enjoy a virtual beer tasting featuring the Tannery Run Brew Works of Ambler in the Bloom Box
Reconnect with alumni, colleagues and friends while keeping an eye on your online auction bids. Stephanie Cohen and Jenny Rose Carey, both authors and past directors of the Ambler Arboretum, will help us celebrate our 20th year as an Arboretum. Test your memories about campus, horticulture and the arboretum and win some prizes during a fun game of Quizzo.
We know this will be different, and we will certainly miss seeing you out in the gardens, but we are looking forward to welcoming everyone into the Arboretum virtually, sharing the gardens with you wherever you are.
We can't wait to see familiar faces and new friends at the Zoom Bloom!
