Bonita Springs, Fla. – (Oct. 29, 2013) – To provide financial support to dozens of programs, The Rotary Club of Bonita Springs is once again selling poinsettias. The 8” potted poinsettia flower sale has become a popular event and successful fundraiser for the club. Proceeds from the sale go to the Gift of Life program, which assists children with life-saving open-heart surgery, as well as other local and international projects of the club.

“Our poinsettia flowers have received positive reviews from residents of Bonita Springs and surrounding communities,” said Susan Schmitt, chair of the Poinsettia Sales Committee. “Last year, we had individuals and organizations purchasing large quantities of plants to brighten their homes, offices and facilities throughout the holiday season. These have been very popular with churches, residential independent and long-term care facilities, and businesses – especially  now with the quantity discounts we’re offering.”

Poinsettia Prices:

Up to 20 flowers: $16/each

21 – 50 flowers: $15/each

51 – 99 flowers: $14/each

100 flowers+: $13/each

Pre-payment is required. Orders must be received by Friday, Nov. 15, 2013. For orders of 20 plants or more, the poinsettias will be delivered. For orders of fewer than 20, the flowers can be picked up Friday, Nov. 29 and Saturday, Nov. 30 at the Rotary Club of Bonita Spring Christmas Tree Tent in the Sunshine Plaza, at the corner of Highway 41 and Bonita Beach Road.
