Living in a world without ALS
*** UPDATE: We can’t thank you enough for your generous support. The ALS fundraiser hanging baskets sold out in little over 24 hours!
**For order inquiries and pick up details please see your order confirmation email. Hanging basket pick up dates are April 15 – 18 and no appointment is required.
Potters has teamed up with a local grower and hanging basket supplier to offer pre-finished hanging baskets in order to help raise funds to support to the lesser known disease ALS.
Peter and Karen Voogt operate a wholesale nursery in Abbotsford BC. They are a longtime supplier and friend of Potters. In early February, Karen’s father was diagnosed with the Balbur onset of ALS which effectively starts with swallowing and speech problems. The progression of this disease is ruthless. At Christmas, he was talking and eating as normal, now 2 months later his ability to speak and chew food is rapidly slipping away.
Our hope with this fundraiser is to bring attention to this disease, while donating all proceeds towards ALS research. We hope there will be a cure someday so that families such as ours won’t have to go through this heart-wrenching journey. Please help support this cause by purchasing a pre-finished hanging basket online.
Please note: These hanging baskets are not finished growing yet and need stay in the greenhouse until mid-April. Purchased baskets are available for pick up from Potters 192 on the following dates:
- Thurs April 15
- Friday April 16
- Saturday April 17
- Sunday April 18
No appointment is required for pick up. Hanging baskets that are unclaimed after April 18th will be donated. Quantities are limited.
When you purchase a pre-finished summer mix hanging basket 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the ALS Society of BC.
