Bloomex Supports Chai LifeLine Poker Fundraiser




Bloomex was delighted to provide the floral arrangements for Chai Lifeline's annual Go All In fundraiser this year. Our team had so much fun creating vibrant red, orange and yellow centrepieces that really popped on the black and white striped table cloths. Every year, Chai Lifeline throws this poker night in honour of all the Chai Warriors that help fund 24 programs supporting 400 families in the Toronto area. Guests enjoy a classic casino night with blackjack tables, roulette and of course, poker! 






Chai Lifeline is an amazing organization that helps support families of seriously ill children as they undergo treatment. Counselling for each member of the family, tutoring for children who must miss school, family retreats, special sibling programs and summer camps all help to relieve the stress of treatment. Each program is lead by passionate volunteers and is completely free.




Bloomex is proud to support this amazing effort! For more information about Chai LifeLine and how you can get involved, visit chailifelinecanada.org

Bloomex supports Bobsleigh CANADA Skeleton as they speed towards gold!

In 1877, the Swiss decided to attach a steering mechanism to a toboggan, giving birth to the first ever bobsleigh. Skeleton got its start in 1892 when Englishman, Mr. Child, surprised his friends with a new sled made mostly from metal and shot down the hill face first. Canada has been competing in this adrenaline pumping sport at the world level since the first Olympic Winter Games in 1924. Athletes plummet down a 1300m track made of ice at 150 km/h, navigating at least 15 curves and every millisecond counts. This is not a sport for the faint of heart!

Canada will be competing at the BMW IBSF World Cup 2018 Games in Whistler, November 24-25 at the Whistler Sliding Centre.






As Official Floral Partner to Bobsleigh CANADA Skeleton (BCS), Bloomex will be providing all florals for the BMW IBSF World Cup 2018 Games being hosted in Whistler, BC on November 24-25. 2017. The provision will include podium bouquets for race winners to be given during the medal ceremonies, as well as floral arrangements for the VIP areas at the venue

On November 1, Canada announced their teams for the BMW IBSF World Cup 2018 Games, kicking off in Lake Placid on November 4-5, 2017. The team will then go on to compete in the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang. Kaillie Humphries is returning to defend her gold medal title, piloting the women’s bobsleigh. Her teammates, 16 in the World Bobsleigh Team and  six in the World Cup Skeleton Team, have helped contribute to four Olympic medals, five World Championship medals and 18 World Cup podium appearances throughout their careers.





To help support these Canadian athletes, Bloomex will donate 15 per cent of every sale to BCS when customers use promo code BCS15 at checkout.

Bloomex joins Canada on the podium at Skate Canada International


The Skate Canada International was held in Regina, Saskatchewan this past weekend and Canada’s stars shone bright as they skated their way to gold. As the official florist of Skate Canada, Bloomex provided all the flowers for the event including podium bouquets, centrepieces, gift baskets and medalist bouquets.




It was a hugely successful weekend for our athletes as Canada won triple gold! Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won for ice dancing, Kaetlyn Osmond took the women’s title and Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford won pairs. Somehow, between all the screaming fans and flashing lights, they still had time to stop and smell the flowers!




The medalist bouquets were made of stunning red Roses and snow white Fuji Mums, reflecting Skate Canada’s official colours and providing added tribute to our country.




Not only did Virtue and Moir win gold for their spectacular ice skating routine, they broke the world record (set by themselves in a previous competition) with a score of 199.86 - amazing!

Bloomex was also happy to provide extra large teddy bears for a fun Pass the Bear contest during the event. Some of the local school children who attended also received Bloomex teddy bears as part of their visit. Bloomex provided gift baskets for hard working volunteers and VIP guests, as well as flowers to brighten locker rooms, the arena, and other key areas of this International event. As always, it was a pleasure to be part of the exciting Skate Canada hosting! Our team had so much fun creating all the bouquets and arrangements.

Warm congratulations to all our amazing Canadian athletes.

Go Canada Go!
