WAILEA — “Growing Dreams” will celebrate its tenth anniversary by adding the dazzle of Broadway to the floral design show.

Entitled “Growing Dreams on Broadway,” the event will feature Denver florist BJ Dyer as the guest floral designer.

Dyer will weave the Broadway theme into his presentation at Maui Youth & Family Services’ signature event on Saturday, Aug. 7, at the Four Seasons Resort in Wailea from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Teena Rasmussen, owner of Paradise Flower Farms on Maui, is the chairperson for the benefit. 

“We have the distinct honor to host BJ this year as we gear up for the most exciting event we’ve ever held,” she said.

“The show will definitely be enhanced with the Broadway theme, featuring some of the biggest shows, and we have an extra special surprise this year.”

Dyer is the co-owner of Bouquets, an award-winning Denver retailer and event decor company with four stores. Since 1985, he’s provided decor for hundreds of showpiece galas and society weddings.

Bon Appetit Magazine listed Bouquets among America’s top ten florists. They are Small Business Administration Hall of Fame inductees, and are twice national runners-up for “Retail Florist of the Year.”

Corporate sponsors and silent auction donors are sought for this MYFS fund-raiser. 

“As fun and glamorous as ‘Growing Dreams’ always is, we want to remember what it’s all about,” said Rasmussen.     

“Ultimately, the show helps MYFS to continue to provide services for Maui’s abused and neglected children, including crucial foster care, mentoring and support.”

In addition to a fabulous luncheon and floral design workshop, the event will feature silent and live auctions. A Tiffany’s pendant will be part of the fantastic lineup.

Tickets for the event are $125; $150 for VIP seating. Guests may purchase tickets online by visiting www.myfs.org and going to the “Growing Dreams” page.
