Last year's event was a huge success raising over $500 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and was named by Proven Winners as the "Most Creative Event in 2011."
Don't miss out on all the fun and come support a good cause!
Make plans now to attend Wheatfield Nursery's 2nd annual *Pink* Day!
2nd Annual *Pink* Day 2012
Wheatfield Nursery will be hosting their 2nd Annual *Pink* Day, a breast cancer research fundraiser on Saturday, June 30, 2012, starting at 11 a.m. as part of the Invincibelle™ Spirit Campaign to raise $1 million for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Last year's fundraising event was a huge success! Wheatfield Nursery raised over $500 for the BCRF.
In addition, their fundraising event was named the "Most Creative Event" by Proven Winners.
Invincibelle™ Spirit begins blooming on new wood in late May to early June and continues blooming right up until frost. Unlike some hydrangeas, soil pH doesn’t affect this hydrangea’s bloom color; the flowers emerge a dark, hot pink color and mature to a light dusty pink. In addition to providing season-long color in the garden, the Invincibelle™ Spirit hydrangea is dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research and prevention.
Like the women who have survived breast cancer, this new hydrangea is resilient and can withstand extreme conditions. For every Invincibelle™ Spirit sold, $1.00 will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Wheatfield Nursery will be adding to the funds raised by the sale of Invincibelle™ Spirit hydrangea by hosting Pink Day, a fun event for the whole family, on June 30, 2012.
The event gets started at 11 a.m. with competitive demonstrations by members of the Pennsylvania Professional Lumberjack Organization – all wearing pink in support of breast cancer research!
Come dressed in pink and bring your friends to enjoy entertainment, delicious food and refreshments, craft vendors, FREE ice cream ... and great deals on plants!
Wheatfield Nursery will be donating a portion of the day's proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), along with donations from the event participants and supporters who visit on June 30th.
For Directions to Wheatfield Nursery (from their website):
* Wheatfield Nursery has scheduled competitive lumberjack demonstrations by the Pennsylvania Professional Lumberjack Organization.
These men and women will be wearing pink in support of breast cancer research.
Members of the organization, of which Wheatfield's manager & organizer, Melissa Berrier, is a part, travel throughout PA and surrounding states showcasing their skills in various lumberjack competitions ranging from wood chopping and sawing to axe throwing.
In a sense, it's an inspirational display of strength and determination for breast cancer patients and survivors.
For more information about the lumberjack organization, you can check out their website: www.pplo.org.
All are encouraged to attend Wheatfield Nursery's 2nd annual fundraiser for breast cancer research ...
There will be something for everyone, and it's planned to be a fun day for the whole family to attend!
