Floral Design Challenge Benefits Dallas Charities

(Press Release)  For the third year, Petals & Stems Florist in North Dallas has brought together six local business executives from different spheres of influence in the Metroplex to create amateur floral arrangements for charity.  The guest designers gathered August 21st to assemble their creations with little coaching from the professional designers standing by. During the taping, contestants had the opportunity to explain what type of design they were making and for what charity they are working. Contestants had 100 varieties of flowers to work with. Their efforts were timed and videoed and now YOU can vote for your favorite!

This year’s participants and their charities are:
Kitty Goddard, Founding Board Member of Arts Incubator of Richardson, representing AIR
Michael Gonzales, President of Armstrong Relocation, representing Limbs For Life
Dr. Michael Norman, Author of Unbridled Grace, representing Catholic Pro Life Committee in Dallas
Rich Thomas, CEO of MetroTexas Association of Realtors, representing MetroTex Charitable Trust
Martha Tiller, CEO of the Martha Tiller Company Public Relations, representing the Dallas Arboretum
Kim Valker, Executive Administrator of Granite Properties, representing Frisco Family Services

Their work has been posted on the internet for viewer voting
And you can only vote once!

Each challenger’s designated charity receives $100 for their participation, and the winning amateur bouquet merits $1,000 for that ‘designer’s’ charity. Online voting began Sept. 4th and will continue through Sept. 10th at 11:59 pm. The contestant with the most votes wins and additional $1,000 for their designated charity. The winner will be announced Sept. 12th.   Click HERE to vote for your favorite!
