In February 2017, we lost a great lady who was dear to us and made a huge impact on so many in the floral industry. During our March Spring Meeting, we — the members of PFCI Board of Trustees — discussed a way for us and the entire industry to honor our beloved mentor and continue Bobbi’s legacy.
Through the American Floral Endowment, we established the Bobbi Ecker-Blatchford Memorial Tribute. We’re calling it “Bucks for Bobbi,” a promotional slogan we thought Bobbi would appreciate.
Why an AFE Memorial Tribute? So much of what AFE does is what Bobbi was all about — educate, inspire, develop new talent and promote a healthy floral industry. Bucks for Bobbi is our mission to honor Bobbi and continue her life mission.
If you would like to join us in contributing Bucks for Bobbi, go to endowment.org/donate. Be sure to specify in the description box that your donation is for Bucks for Bobbi. Contributions can be mailed to:
