Thank you Becker County! The overwhelming support that Becker County residents, businesses and other groups showed to support the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days was incredible.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who participated in this campaign to support important Society programs and resources to help people facing cancer to improve their quality of life.
Although Daffodil Days involves giving beautiful flowers, it is really about giving hope for a world free of cancer. It is heartwarming to know that so many of our fellow residents are dedicated to fighting back against cancer.
Thank you to the volunteer sales coordinators, drivers and daffodil preparation volunteers as well as to everyone who supported this year's Daffodil Days by requesting flowers for their homes and/or offices, or donating flowers to area hospitals and health care facilities.
Special thanks to Central Market and Lakes Liquors.
Thank you also to our local businesses that sponsored cases to underwrite the cost of the flowers. This year, 1,500 daffodils were given in exchange for donations, raising approximately $15,000.
Together, Becker County and the American Cancer Society are making a difference in the fight against cancer.
