Youth In Action to host Bloom 2017

Providence, RI - Youth In Action to host Bloom 2017!

On Thursday, April 20, 2017 , Youth In Action (YIA), a Providence-based youth organization, will host its annual fundraiser, Bloom 2017! The event will take place at Aurora Providence, located at 276 Westminster Street in Providence from 6-9pm . Bloom is a crucial part of ensuring that YIA’s programs are sustainable and innovative. Just as the name suggests, Bloom is about celebrating the growth and blossoming of youth, community, and YIA. At this event, YIA youth have the opportunity to share their stories and the stories of their communities, which in turn is the story of Youth In Action.

This year’s Bloom will feature a one of a kind live auction! Bloom 2017 will celebrate a city of folks doing creative, impactful work in our communities. The “Exchange for Change” will highlight some of Providence’s brightest, boldest and busiest change makers. Bidding on a  networking opportunity with o ne of our “most eligible” gives guests the chance at one-on-one opportunity to pick their brain, woo them with your brilliance, and find out more about their work - all while supporting Youth In Action.

In addition to the not-to-be missed live auction, the event includes hors d'oeuvres , cocktails, music, a gallery of young people’s projects, and YIA’s signature photo booth. Bloom 2017 is sponsored by Adler, Pollock, Sheehan, PC; Blue Cross & Blue Shield of RI; and Audette, Cordeiro & Violette, PC. Tickets are prices range from $25-$75 and can be purchased online at
