Niagara Hospice bouquet sale seeks walk-up locationsby jmaloni
Staff and volunteers from the Niagara Hospice Alliance are gearing up for the 2014 spring bouquet sale, which runs March 3-9, with pre-sale bouquets being ordered now and throughout the month of February.
In 2013, the sale raised nearly $20,000 to support hospice care in Niagara County.
"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 3," said Niagara Hospice Alliance Event Coordinator Mandy Raff.
Bouquets will sell for $8 each. There is no cost to the organization to participate.
"We look forward to this sale each year, and it is a great way to get the whole Niagara County community involved," Raff said. "The event helps raise awareness about hospice, while at the same time supports vital services for family, friends and neighbors dealing with serious illness."
Proceeds from the sale help support the mission of Niagara Hospice to provide the right care, in the right place, at the right time. Raff said anyone who wants to participate can call the events department at 716-280-0766. Visit the news and events page at www.NiagaraHospice.org for more information.
