Roses...Just Because

Parents & Skaters:

Avera Sacred Heart Foundation has partnered with YAIA-Yankton Figure Skating to sell "Roses…Just Because." This fundraiser supports Hospice and the Eden Fund at Avera Majestic Bluffs.  These are truly awesome programs to provide care to people in their last stages. The cost is $25.00 per dozen.

Every year the Avera Sacred Heart Foundation reaches out to a number of non-profit organizations in the community requesting their assistance in the sale of their roses. With the support of all these outstanding groups selling roses for the Foundation, they can more easily obtain their fundraising goals. One of those organizations is the Yankton Area Ice Association- Figure Skaters. This is a great opportunity to support Hospice and YAIA and Yankton Figure Skating. For every dozen sold by the YAIA, ASHF will donate $5.00 to the YAIA/Yankton Figure Skating; $12.50 will continue to go to the Hospice Program and the other $7.50 is for the cost for the roses.

If you are interested in selling roses to help raise money for YAIA and ASHF, please contact me at 605-660-3774 or e-mail me at This is a very easy sell. The only thing you have to do is collect the money and hand the buyer a ticket. The buyer is responsible for presenting their ticket and picking up their own roses at the Benedictine Center on Tuesday, April 16th. All money and stubs will need to be returned to me by March 12th.

If you are interested in purchasing a dozen roses, please call me at 605-660-3774 or e-mail me at to place your orders.  Orders must be placed by March 12th. Cash, Checks and Credit card orders are accepted. Checks should be made payable to "Avera Sacred Heart Foundation". Roses will be available for pickup on Tuesday, April 21st at the Benedictine Center.  Please forward this information to anyone in your business or personal contacts that you think would be interested.

Thank you for your support!
