As a retail flower shop, Belle Fiori sends out many daily arrangements to local Milwaukeeans, but this past week we were honored to be wrapping up a very exciting delivery opportunity from specialty retailer, Nordstrom. These floral arrangements served as a way to personally invite local charity members from the Ronald McDonald House, The United Way, and The Links organizations to a very special cocktail party with a focus on panning the upcoming Nordstrom Grand Opening Gala in October!
The Gala, which will be hosted at the store’s new location at Mayfair Mall, will be held on October 21, 2015 and will benefit these three charities, as a way to give back to the community. As Brent Harris, Nordstrom Vice President and Midwest Regional Manager, explained to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “The three organizations we are partnering with for our gala do great work and we’re inspired by their dedication the Milwaukee Community. We are honored to join then in their efforts to make a difference.”
With over 150 of these extra orders heading out Belle Fiori’s door, we hired on some additional charismatic personnel to present the arrangements and invitations which were hand-delivered on a clear lucite tray (so fun and super chic)! All of the drivers loved the reactions they received from the recipients and we are so happy to have been a part of this fantastic event!
Guests of the Gala will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, live entertainment and the opportunity to shop the new 140,000 square-foot store. Tickets for the opening gala are $100 and will go on sale in June 2015. The event, entirely underwritten by Nordstrom, is expected to raise $150,000 to be shared among the three organizations.
