Businesses and Schools needed for Hospice Buffalo's Spring Bouquet Sale

Participants invited to free breakfast on January 17th.

Local companies, organizations and schools are invited to participate in our 31st Annual Hospice Spring Bouquet Sale™, for the event’s pre-sale phase held in January and February. Participants simply assign a coordinator from their organization to take care of employee bouquet orders with Hospice Buffalo. A free display bouquet and kit is provided to each coordinator. Coordinators are eligible to win a $150 Visa gift card by attending a free breakfast on January 17 with WGRZ-TV’s Maryalice Demler.

Each gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers includes roses, carnations, other fresh flowers and greens. The bouquets can be pre-ordered for $8 each, and are sure to bring the feeling of spring to your office or school! A special over-sized tribute bouquet featuring 30 stems will also be available for pre-orders at $30 each. For every tribute bouquet ordered, a spring bouquet will be sent to brighten the day of a current Hospice Buffalo patient.

The Hospice Spring Bouquet Sale™ is the largest fundraiser for Hospice Buffalo. Over 600 community volunteers assist with the sale. Presented by KeyBank; additional sponsors include Paula’s Donuts, Andersons, WGRZ-TV, Country 106.5 WYRK, Lamar Advertising, and Allegra Cheektowaga.
