American Cancer Society announces Daffodil Days

Posted: Friday, January 25, 2008

JUNEAU - Pre-sales for the annual Daffodil Days, a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, will be open from Monday, Jan. 28, to Friday, Feb. 15.

Money raised from the event is used for cancer research, educational programs, advocacy activities and services for cancer patients and their families. In the past years Juneau, Skagway, Hoonah, Tenakee, Gustavus and Angoon have always supported this program with great enthusiasm. Last year, Juneau was number one for sales in Alaska.

The daffodils will be delivered on March 12. The Daffodil Committee will offer daffodils for $10 a bundle, which consists of 10 blooms. A minimum order of 10 bundles is required for delivery. Smaller orders will be available for pick up at the Goldbelt Building downtown or the Nugget Alaskan Outfitters in the Nugget Mall on the day of delivery. Pre-sales volunteers will contact customers for orders during the pre-sale period.

If you have not been contacted by a pre-sale volunteer and you would like to order, contact Wanda Fleming, daffodil chairperson, at 364-3617.
