Pink Day Ideas & Inspiration from Garden Centers all across North America!
Garden centers everywhere are hosting their own Pink Day fundraisers, raising thousands of dollars for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and having a heck of a good time while doing it! Let their events inspire you to host your own Pink Day! Have a great idea? We’d love to include it on our site! Click here to submit your pink day stories and photos > >
How cute is this? Uncle John’s Plant Farm in Olmsted Falls, Ohio painted dozens of tiny terra cotta pots bright pink and “sold” them to customers for a donation. Customers could then hang their “Invinci-bell” on a lighted tree in the garden center with a message of support. A great way to raise funds for your event and an excellent conversation starter in the garden center.
Include the unique talents and interests of your staff to make your event one that everyone will be talking about! Pink Days at Wheatfield Nursery in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania are like no other: marketing manager Melissa is a member of the professional lumberjacking association and recruited her fellow lumberjacks (and lumberjills) to demonstrate their skills dressed in pink.
What’s the best way to involve the community, get customers excited, and raise beaucoup bucks for breast cancer research? Hold a bake sale full of items donated by locals! Moneta Farm and Home Center in Moneta, Virginia raised over $7,000 at their event, thanks in no small part to a tempting display of tasty treats, all to be had for a donation to BCRF. When its for a good cause, calories don’t count (or, at least, they shouldn’t)!
Why is this group from English Gardens in Michigan smiling? Because they’ve raised over $11,000 for breast cancer research – and $9,000 of it they raised well before their Pink Day! How’d they do it? Beginning on Mother’s Day weekend, they sold raffle tickets for prizes to be drawn during their late July event. They capitalized on all their spring traffic to publicize and generate interest in their event with very big results!
