Hoping to top last year’s sum of nearly $20,000 raised to support local hospice care, staff and volunteers from Niagara Hospice are gearing up for the 2016 Spring Bouquet Sale. The sale will run March 7-13 with presale bouquets being ordered throughout February.
“Even though it seems like winter just began, it’s great to be thinking spring as we work with the community on getting this event together and spreading some beautiful spring blooms throughout Niagara County in early March,” said Mandy Raff, Niagara Hospice’s event coordinator.
Noting last year’s success, Raff said, “We want to keep this momentum going and growing. We are seeking more Niagara County businesses and organizations to participate in our walk-up sale the week of March 7.”
Bouquets sell for $8 and there is no cost to any organization to participate.
“We look forward to this sale each year and it’s a great way to get the whole Niagara County community involved to raise awareness about hospice services,” Raff added.
Volunteers are an integral part of the sale, from preparing materials to selling bouquets at community walk-up locations, or making bouquet deliveries to businesses, schools and churches. If you are interested in volunteering for a couple of hours, one day during the sale or more, contact Raff at 280-0766 or visit www.NiagaraHospice.org for more information.
