Baldwin Bloom Revival - Online Auction

The Baldwin Blooms auction was an adults-only evening of delicious food and good company, held at the Maud Morgan Arts Center in late Spring. The auction was Friends of Baldwin’s biggest annual fundraiser. During the pandemic, we pivoted and held Baldwin Blooms Zooms. The success of that week-long online auction has several parents hoping to revive Baldwin Blooms. We’ve started some first steps and if we hit our milestones with auction items and volunteers by mid-February, will move forward with planning.

We have a parent soliciting donations from local business and several others who have volunteered to manage the online auction platform. However, we need more help. If you’re interested in any of the following positions or in helping in any way with Baldwin Blooms online auction, please contact us at admin@friendsofbaldwin.org. The final decision about Baldwin Blooms will be determined by a variety of factors. 


Every Wednesday (weather permitting) at pick-up outside school.  Stop by for a fresh loaf!

The bread for our Bread Sales is generously donated by Iggy’s Bread. Proceeds help fund the annual teacher appreciation lunch in May.
