MS Carnation Sale

MS Carnation Sale

Friday, May 7, 2010

10:30am - 1:00pm

ARC concourse, near Tim Hortons

For more Information:


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.  As much as we love the summer heat, it is not welcome by those with MS as it exacerbates their already difficult symptoms.  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 a live plant to celebrate that day and know that you have contributed to a great cause as well. 

The 11th annual sale at UTSC will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  - or until the flowers run out - on Friday, May 7.  Last year we were in the Academic Resources concourse - near Tim Horton's - watch for us there again!

As usual, there will be bouquets of mini-carnations in many colours, mixed bouquets of flowers and live mini-carnation plants (which can go right into your spring garden!) - and again this year, there will be 5-stem bouquets of regular carnations .  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.)

Karen Henderson can take advance orders by email, and you can be assured that these will be held for you to pick up (and pay for) on May 7 - until 12:30 p.m.  When you place your order, please let her know how many, which kind and what colour you prefer.  She can usually fulfill the colour choices for the bouquets, but the plants often have closed buds and you may have to take your chances with those.

UTSC has been the highest corporate donor in Scarborough for the past 8 years. Please help us achieve that success again.
