It may not be a big deal to some, but those on the receiving end of the 11th annual “Rotary Roses” fundraiser are likely to get a big boost from receiving a dozen (red or mixed coloured) blooms.
That’s just the effect the Rotary Club of Sarnia’s program has in the community, say organizers.
And it’s on—from now until March 16, the deadline for ordering the $30 per dozen flowers.
In partnership with Flowers by Bill Bush, club members are selling the roses, with net proceeds to go to advancing Rotary efforts related to health, special needs children, youth leadership development and literacy at local institutions and non-profit agencies.
The club also supports international projects.
Roses may be ordered through one of the club members or by calling (519) 490-1066. Orders can also be relayed by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rotarians have also sponsored 75 dozen roses, to be delivered to seven area nursing homes so that all residents get a rose to brighten their day.
Roses may be picked up at Flowers by Bill Bush (310 Christina St. N.) on Sunday, March 20 between noon and 3 p.m. Alternatively, roses will be delivered within Sarnia City limits on Monday, March 21, 2016.
