It's January, it's cold and snowy... but it's not too early to start thinking about the 25th annual Hospice Spring Bouquet Sale! 

Area companies and schools are invited to participate in the 25th Anniversary Hospice Buffalo Spring Bouquet Sale, during the event's pre-sale phase held during January and February.  Participants simply assign a coordinator in an office who takes care of ordering bouquets with Hospice Buffalo. A free display bouquet and kit is provided to each company/school coordinator. Coordinators are eligible to win a Flip Video camcorder by attending a special breakfast on Jan. 18th!

Each gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers includes mums, carnations, other fresh flowers and greens. The bouquets can be pre-ordered for $8 each - and are sure to put the feeling of spring in the air! A special over-sized tribute bouquet is also available to pre-order for $30.  For every tribute bouquet ordered, a spring bouquet will be provided free to a Hospice Buffalo patient. 

 Founded by the Professional Florists of Western New York, the Hospice Buffalo Spring Bouquet Sale™ is the largest fundraiser for the Hospice Foundation. Over 500 community volunteers assist with the sale.

Proceeds from the Spring Bouquet Sale benefit the Hospice Foundation, supporting Hospice Buffalo, the Hospice Buffalo House at Mitchell Campus, the St. John Baptist/Hospice Buffalo House, Essential Care for Children, the Caring Hearts Perinatal Program and the Life Transitions Center.  All are part of The Center for Hospice & Palliative Care, dedicated to the care and support of individuals with a serious or end of life illness.
