April 11th, 2024, marked a spectacular evening forHelping Mamas Knoxville as we hosted our 4th annual Bloom Bash at the scenic Reserve at Blue Bird Hill. This event wasn’t just a night of entertainment and elegance; it was a gathering with a profound purpose—to raise funds and support for the families in need across our community. And what a success it was! Together, we raised over $23,000, thanks to the generosity and spirit of everyone involved.

A Fusion of Fun and Philanthropy

Bloom Bash 2024 was a blend of fun activities and meaningful philanthropy. The evening kicked off with a silent auction, featuring an array of items that had everyone excited to place their bids. Adding a vibrant touch to the night were live painters Jenny Parkhurst (@jennyparkhurstdesigns) and Kellie Montana (@kelliemontana) , whose artistry brought a burst of creativity to the ambiance.

The culinary delights were nothing short of spectacular, with an assortment of yummy food and drinks that kept the conversations flowing and spirits high. The fashion show was a major highlight, showcasing the latest trends from local boutiques like Elle, Gather , Apricot Lane Knoxville, Joy in the Dawn, Gracie Lees, and Virginia Jane. Each runway walk not only displayed beautiful attire but also embodied the community’s support and unity.
