Spring for Life 2017!

This March, ARCHES  Society will welcome spring by hosting its annual Gerbera Daisy SPRING FOR LIFE fundraising campaign, and we are looking for your support to ensure its success.
Spring for Life is one of our major fundraisers for the year, and all proceeds support the programs of ARCHES, which provides services to those living with HIV/AIDS in Southwestern Alberta. In order to make the campaign successful, we rely on the generosity of people and businesses like yours.
The Spring for Life campaign features 5 brightly coloured mini Gerbera daisies for the low price of $5.00 a bouquet. The daisies can be pre-ordered anytime by emailing student2@lethbridgearches.com or by calling the office at 403-328-8186 between 9 am and 4 pm Monday to Thursday. The daisies will be available for delivery (on orders of 10 bouquets or more) on March 16th and 17th or you can pick them up at ARCHES at 1206 – 6 Ave S. between 9:00 and 4:00 on March 15th to 17th.
This is a great opportunity to brighten your home or office or someone’s day with the beauty of spring– all while supporting a local cause!
Spring for Life and make a difference in your community!
