Our biggest fundraiser of the year, the VW’s Flower Basket Fundraiser, has begun!
March 17, 2018 | 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Deanna Kangas and Angelique Scarlett will be at Connections Christian Store in Lynden selling VW’s gift certificates. We would love to have a couple extra adults or students come join us for part of the time. If you are willing to come spend an hour with them, please let one of them know!
How it works: If you would like to participate, you will be selling gift certificates for $30.00 each toward a GORGEOUS 12” flower basket, plus a coupon for 10% off any other items purchased when redeeming the certificate. Suggested selling price is $35.00, so we are selling them at a discount. They make FABULOUS Mother’s Day gifts, and do wonders for brightening up a porch or patio.
CERTIFICATES WILL BE AVAILABLE IN STUDY HALL EACH TUESDAY & THURSDAY THROUGH MARCH 22, 2018. ALL FUNDS & UNSOLD CERTIFICATES MUST BE TURNED IN BY TUESDAY, MARCH 22, 2018.
Parents: Because the certificates are treated like cash, we prefer to give the certificates directly to you, the parent. If you would like your child to bring certificates home, please send a note with them indicating how many you want. You may also contact Angelique Scarlett, or Deanna Kangas, and let them know directly.
Additionally, if you are requesting a large quantity of certificates (more than 10), please contact Angelique Scarlett so she can have them ready for you.
HOW TO REDEEM: The certificate holder will redeem their certificate for the 12” flower basket of their choosing at VW’s Garden Center on Portal Way (About ¼ mile north of the Birch Bay Lynden Rd / Portal Way intersection) anytime after the baskets are available to the public. Typically, the baskets start to arrive in the Garden Center around April. We usually suggest that to be able to choose from a wide variety, waiting until the end of April, first part of May (before Mother’s Day), is best. Certificates are valid through the end of May 2018.
In years past, VW’s has allowed certificate holders to apply their certificate toward the larger size flower basket if they so desire.
