First Bloom Event

Sun, August 8, 2021
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT

First Bloom is a companion Soles of Love-inspired event for elementary and middle school aged girls which focuses on the importance of learning philanthropy at a young age.

Girls must be accompanied by a responsible female adult and are asked to bring new shoes which will be donated to local children in need.

Attendees are invited to dress in anything that makes them feel like they are truly “Island Girls” which is the theme of this year’s event.

Interactive experiential activities will be provided for the girls to heighten engagement. Tickets are available!
