BLOOM :: An Event for New and Expecting Moms

Disclosure :: Our Bloom Event for New and Expecting Moms is sponsored by Summit Credit Union and Ascension, hosted by The Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts. We can’t make this event fabulous without their support. It’s always a pleasure to plan events alongside professional and gracious hosts. 

Event Postponed due to COVID-19

As a trusted community resource, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this event to September 24, 2020 in accordance with the CDC guidelines to avoid large gatherings to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We do not take this decision lightly and we hope you will make plans to join us in September! (In fact, we’d bet there is going to be a little baby boom in about 9 to 10 months…..)


We are thrilled to present Bloom: An Event for New & Expecting Moms taking place on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at the gorgeous Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts. Bloom is specifically for women who are currently expecting, adopting, fostering or who have become a mother in the past year.
