Staff and volunteers from Niagara Hospice are gearing up for the 2017 spring bouquet sale. The event will run March 6-12 with pre-sale bouquets being ordered throughout the month of February.

Niagara Hospice event coordinator Mandy Raff said, "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."

In 2016, the sale raised over $20,000 to support hospice care in Niagara County.

"We want to keep this momentum going and growing!" Raff said. "We are seeking more Niagara County businesses and organizations to participate in our walk-up sale the week of March 6."

Bouquets sell for $8 each. 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 said.

Volunteers are an integral part of the sale, from preparing materials, to selling at community walk-up locations, to making the bouquet deliveries to businesses, schools and churches. Those interested in volunteering for a couple of hours, one day during the sale or more, can contact Raff at 716-280-0766 or visit www.NiagaraHospice.org for more information.

Niagara Hospice raises funds to help offset costs for individuals who are under or uninsured.
