Children in Bloom Council Holds Lunch To Benefit Environmental Education

The ninth annual Children in Bloom Luncheon “Blue Skies” took place on Oct. 16 at Old Westbury Gardens, in support of environmental education. Mike Keenan, the regional vice president of Wells Fargo was the honoree and Linsey David, a correspondent for ABC News, was the guest speaker.

Over the past eight years, Children in Bloom Luncheon has raised more than $225,000 for Old Westbury Gardens, which is committed to children’s education, welcoming more than 3,000 low-income students annually from pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first grade for complimentary seasonal visits.

The beautifully preserved site is the perfect setting for an outdoor classroom, where children can explore the science behind trees, seasons, plants and wildlife.
