The Imperial District of the American Cancer Society warmly thanks the people of the Imperial Valley communities for their continued support of our Daffodil Days fund-raising event. Hundreds of volunteers sold, wrapped, routed and delivered daffodils throughout the county on March 18 and 19. A total of $46,000 was raised during Daffodil Days, which will be used to support research and locally to fund education and service programs throughout Imperial County.
Many local cancer patients received the Gift of Hope daffodil bouquets during the American Cancer Society's 19th annual Daffodil Days campaign. Funds raised through the Gift of Hope donations allow the purchase of anonymously given bouquets of daffodils to be delivered to cancer patients at local medical facilities.
Daffodil chairpersons Sandra and Roy Austin of Brawley worked diligently to organize this tremendous enterprise. Imagine delivering 3,800 bouquets of flowers in just two days! We are deeply indebted to these individuals whose commitment and efforts are reflected in our outstanding success.
