For one night, every year, Youth In Action (YIA) gets dressed up and invites everyone we know to a big party for the sole purpose of celebrating work that is filled with creativity, connection and courage.
Join us Thursday, April 20, 2017 - together we can amplify the work.
This year we are featuring a display of youth curated projects, our signature photo booth and for the first time ever, our live auction, "Exchange for Change".
YIA knows that we are only a piece of the change happening in the city and that together, with other change makers, we can really do something special in Providence. With that in mind, we've asked a handful of folks in the community that we think are rockstars to donate their time and public support to YIA, by joining us on stage during Bloom for a live auction. During "Exchange for Change" our supporters will be able to donate to YIA, recognize the work each individual is doing in the community and win one-on-one time with some of Providence's brightest, boldest (and busiest) change-makers.
Bloom 2017 is sponsored by Adler, Pollock, Sheehan, PC; Coastway Community Bank; MetLife Auto & Home; Blue Cross & Blue Shield of RI; and Audette, Cordeiro & Violette, PC and supported by in-kind donors - Bottles Fine Wine, Cardi's Furniture, Flatbread Pizza Company, Fox Point Pickling Company, Gregg's Restaurants & Taverns and The Dean Hotel.
