Once again, the Castlegar Rotary Club is busy selling tickets for the Thanksgiving Roses fundraiser. For only $20, a dozen beautiful roses will be delivered by a Rotarian to your special someone on Tuesday, October 2. Roses can be delivered anywhere in Castlegar and the immediate surrounding area.
“Last year, we delivered 674 dozen roses and raised $6,300,” said Kim Morris, Director. “All of this money goes back into the community and helps to fund a number of local projects.”
Proceeds from past years have helped to fund the digital mammography campaign at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, heart monitor at the Castlegar Health Centre, the gazebo and patio at Talarico Place, the green gym at the Millennium Park, wheelchairs for the Red Cross, the skateboard park, the Selkirk College Single Parent Bursary and PolioPlus—worldwide eradication of Polio.
Thanksgiving Rose tickets will be available until Thursday, September 27. To place an order, please contact any Rotarian or call Kim Morris at 250-354-8004.
