2017 BluBall

Known locally as the "Craziest" charity event around, BluBall attire for the evening is anything from blue jeans to blue hair. Ladies often scour local thrift shops prior to the event looking for the perfect 80's gown in hopes of being crowned "Queen of the BluBall". This years admission ($45.00) includes live music by the Cherry Lane Band, Elvis will be in the house, a silent auction, complimentary beer and wine, Stations of the BluBall, and all you can eat.

Different from other charity events, the BluBall gives proceeds to a different local charity each year. Past years have included organizations such as Tabor Childrens Services, Twilight Wish Foundation, the Bucks County Woman's Fund, Roxy Reading, and many more. Through the years the BluBall has raised over $50,000 for local charities. We have also established the BluBall Foundation which will continue our local philanthropic mission in perpetuity.

This years charity is Discover Doylestown!

Check out the BluBall on Facebook, or visit our website at www.bluball.rocks

Hanging Flower Baskets

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Flower Committee thanks all our volunteers for the basket preparation that occurred on April 18th and April 20th.  At this time, 240 baskets are growing in the Geerlings greenhouse.  Our next need for volunteers is Saturday, May 20th at 9:00 am when our volunteers will work with Doylestown Borough staff to transport the baskets from Geerlings to the Borough for hanging on our streetlights.

If you want to volunteer on the 20th, plan to meet at Starbucks at 9:00 am.  We usually work in crews of two.  If you have a manageable 6-foot stepladder, please bring it as we only have a limited number available.  All volunteers will receive full instructions and there will be coffee and doughnuts.  With sufficient volunteers, we should be completed well before noon.

Please direct any questions about this program to rick.kempes@verizon.net or patty@pwhitehomes.com.  If you can volunteer please call or email the office.

Thank you for your interest in this signature program.

Preparing Flower Baskets

Preparing Flower Baskets

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Discover Doylestown Flower Committee asks for your help on our popular hanging basket program.

We'll be preparing the baskets (moss, soil, etc.) on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 and installing flowers in each basket on Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 pm at Sunlit Farms, 3091 Street Road, Warrington, PA 18976.

All interested persons are welcome.

As we prepare the baskets for planting, each basket is lined with water soaked sphagnum moss and then filled with potting soil.  This can be a little sloppy, so wear old clothes.

The April 20th session is the actual planting of around 20 individual plants in each of the baskets.  There is no heavy lifting as the plants are very small at this stage.  All volunteers will be given instruction and guidance on the planting procedure.

After the baskets have been planted, they'll percolate in the greenhouse for about 4 weeks until ready for transport and installation in town on May 20, 2017.

If you can volunteer please call the office at 215-340-9988 or email info@discoverdoylestown.org
