The 65th Annual Room to Bloom Celebration hosted by the Mint Museum Auxiliary represents local fellowship and philanthropy at its best ~  a series of beautiful and entertaining events hosted by the Auxiliary’s 600+ members spanning seven generations of women who, since 1956, have gathered to support and raise over $13 million in funds and acquisitions for the Mint Museum. 

Each spring The Mint Museum Auxiliary plans, produces, and hosts the Room to Bloom Celebration, a premiere fundraiser for The Mint Museum. Leading up to the always sold-out and hugely popular Spring Symposium at Charlotte Country Club are several parties and events for Auxiliary supporters.
