Local philanthropist Russell J. Salvatore is sponsoring the Ovarian Cancer Project’s annual geranium sale.

A press release stated, “The organization, based in east Amherst, is celebrating the 12th anniversary of its annual geranium sale fundraiser this coming Mother’s Day weekend. All proceeds benefit the Ovarian Cancer Project, the region’s only nonprofit providing supportive programs for women with ovarian and advanced gynecological cancers. All services offered by the Ovarian Cancer Project are free of charge, thanks to sales from this annual fundraiser.”

Founder And President Kathleen Maxian said, “With Mr. Salvatore’s help and name recognition, we hope to have our largest sale ever. The funds raised from this sale keep our programs and services for people in our community with ovarian and gynecologic cancers free of charge.”

The organization provides ovarian and uterine cancer support groups, a caregiver support group, opportunities to socialize, community education programs, and a retreat program.

Organizers added, “With 85,000 plants sold since the inaugural sale in 2013, these bright and beautiful zonal geraniums are the perfect gift for Mother’s Day – not to mention for your favorite gardener or your own home.”

Color choices include red, pink, white, salmon and hot pink. Special discount pricing for businesses is available. Each single order includes one full flat of 10 flowering geranium plants in 4.5-inch pots for $36.99.

This is a presale-only sale, and all orders must be submitted by Friday, April 26. The pickup date is Saturday, May 11 – the day before Mother’s Day. The fundraiser has six convenient pickup locations in Eire and Niagara counties: in Buffalo, Cheektowaga, Snyder, Williamsville, Hamburg and North Tonawanda.
