Saturday, February 9th was the night of one of the premier events in Winston-Salem. 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of Winterlark, an annual gala which raises money for the Cancer Patient Support Program at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Held at the historic Graylyn Estate each year, this black-tie dinner party is coordinated by a group of over 100 volunteers and is one of the most successful benefits in the area.
For the last six years Bo-Ty Florist has been proud to help with the lavish floral decorations that have become an significant part of the luxurious affair. Our designers are excited to lend their talents to the hard working committee that organizes this function. Our own Glenna Dawson and Karl Hastings, Jr. serve on that committee, and Karl especially puts a lot of his own time and energy into making it a night to remember. We feel that this is an important way that we can “give back” to the community, helping to defray a lot of the cost of floral product and donating our creative talent.
At Bo-Ty Florist we decorate and make beautiful floral designs for all sorts of parties, but we are not often a part of the festivities as guests. Winterlark is one that we get to attend and enjoy the beauty of the flowers from the “other side.”
Flowers throughout the estate simply added a special touch to the elegant setting. It’s just not a party without flowers!
