A small committee has been working over the past few months to make this event possible—contacting donors and sponsors, working with floral artists and businesses, and collaborating with wonderful Mia staffers to build an engaging website. 

One of the members, Therese Blaine, assembled the following poem, using words provided by the team to describe their efforts:

The Dream Team

Our group is small but mighty.

Embracing the new—a virtual Art in Bloom.

Creative, committed, collaborative, and connected.

Experienced, efficient, focused.

It is a joy.

Women working together.

Kind and sensible and considerate,

honoring each other.

A beautiful bouquet.
