Turf Valley's Commitment to Blossoms of Hope

By: Turf Valley Resort / 06 Apr 2023

Turf Valley began its partnership with Blossoms of Hope in 2005 and has continued our unwavering commitment to support the charity through our annual Pretty in Pink event and tree planting initiatives.

Blossoms of Hope started through the Office of Howard County Tourism and Promotion to beautify the county with the planting of Kwanzan Cherry Blossom Trees. In 2005, Turf Valley was one of first participants to plant cherry blossom trees on the property. In 2006, Blossoms of Hope reached their goal of 1,000 trees planted throughout Howard County.

Over the years, a total of 2,700 trees were planted and more than $650,000 donated to the community, including the Claudia Mayer/Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center at Howard County General Hospital. In 2022, a new goal of "3700 Blossoms by 2025" was put in place to mirror Washington D.C.'s 3,700 Cherry Blossom trees. The effort is underway to plant an additional 1,000 trees to reach 3,700 in the county. Turf Valley recently purchased an additional 100 trees from Blossoms of Hope to help reach the 2025 goal.

On Friday, April 14th, Turf Valley will host our 14th annual Pretty in Pink Ladies Luncheon. Tickets to the event include shopping with uniquely crafted vendors, a seated luncheon, followed by a fashion show featuring models who are cancer survivors and the healthcare heroes that support them. Proceeds from the event go directly to Blossoms of Hope to support the Claudia Mayer / Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center at Howard County General Hospital.

A very special thank you to our sponsors who helped make this event possible!
