Wildflower Camp Foundation, a local nonprofit that helps children in Westwood and the Greater Boston area who have lost a parent with the gift of summer camp and ongoing support, will host a 10-year anniversary event honoring Needham native and renowned psychologist and author, Dr. Robert Brooks.
Dr. Brooks will be presented with the organization’s first Wildflower Impact Award for his participation as a Wildflower Advisory Board member and in recognition of his ongoing commitment to the field of resilience in children and adults. He is one of today’s leading speakers and authors on the topics of resilience, motivation, school climate, a positive work environment, and family relationships with more than 35 years of experience in the field.
“This anniversary event allows us to celebrate our past and to pay tribute to our supporters over the last decade,” says Cyndi Jones, founder and president of Wildflower Camp Foundation. “Most importantly, it gives Wildflower the opportunity to toast to our future of helping our campers and their families.”
Wildflower’s 10-year anniversary event will kick-off with live street performers and guided tours of the spring gardens at the Elm Bank Reservation. A cocktail reception will follow featuring hors d’oeurves by The Catered Affair, a raw bar by Island Creek Oysters, wine by Gordon’s Fine Wines and Liquors, and beer provided by Peak Organic. A short program, award presentation honoring Dr. Brooks, and cake celebration will conclude the event.
The event will be held on June 3 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley. Guests are invited to come early for street performers and guided tours from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
