MS Carnation Sale - 9th Year of Support at U of T Scarborough


9th MS Carnation Sale at U of T Scarborough

Friday, May 9, 2008

Time:  10:30 am - 2:00 pm

Location:  Meeting Place


Canada has one of the highest per capita incidences of Multiple Sclerosis in the world.  This devastating neurological disease is usually diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 40 years and occurs in three times as many women as men.  It manifests itself in many ways, all of which affect the quality of that person's life.  The carnation campaign, sponsored by the MS Society of Canada, funds research into the causes and treatment of the disease as well as providing services to MS patients and their families.

The sale is always just before Mother's Day; so, consider purchasing a beautiful bouquet or plant to celebrate that day and know that you have contributed to a great cause as well. 

The 9th annual sale at UTSC will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 2 pm, on Friday, May 9.  Look for us on your way through the Meeting Place, under the clock.

There will be bouquets of mini-carnations in many colours, mixed bouquets of flowers and mini-carnation plants for sale.  The cut flowers will all be $6 for each bouquet, or two for $10.  The live plants will be $6 each (no price break for multiples.)

Advance orders can be taken by email (, and you can be assured that these will be held for you to pick up (and pay for) on May 9.  When you place your order, please indicate how many, which kind and what colour you prefer.  Orders can usually be fulfilled for bouquets colour choices, but the plants often have closed buds and you may have to take your chances with those.

U of T Scarborough has been the highest corporate donor in Scarborough for the past 6 years. Please help us achieve that success again.

Ann Verner, Cathy Pickett and Karen Henderson will be running the sale this year and, look forward to your orders, we all look forward to seeing you on May 9, 10:30 a.m. to 2pm.
