In Bloom Fundraiser to Benefit Local Community Action Efforts Scheduled for May 26

BALLSTON SPA — LifeWorks Community Action is hosting its annual May Day fundraiser, a cocktail reception and honorary committee membership drive on Thursday, May 26, at 6 p.m. at Longfellows Restaurant in Saratoga Springs.

Themed In Bloom, the event will highlight the local impact of LifeWorks (formerly Saratoga County Economic Opportunity Council) during the past few years, while raising funds for neighbor-driven programs including the Food Pantry, Soup Kitchen, Immigrant Services and Family Services. The fundraiser takes its inspiration from a quote attributed to former First Lady Claudia “Lady Bird” Johnson: “Where flowers bloom, so does hope.”

The fundraiser also marks the launch of the LifeWorks Partners for Empowerment program, an honorary committee that will serve as a source of sustainable, mission-driven support to meet the immediate needs of our neighbors and to deliver the tools, skills and opportunities that contribute to the economic security of families and communities.
