Let’s Get Loud Today at the Home & Garden Show and Raise Money for the Wes Leonard Heart Foundation

IMG_7083-2

Hello friends!

If you’re local and planning to be at the Home & Garden Show today in Grand Rapids, I can use your help! I was invited to participate in  J Schwanke’s Flower Power Challenge at 5 p.m. (Friday 3/7/14) during which four contestants representing four different local charities will have five minutes to make an floral arrangement on the Home Stage. The winner will be determined by crowd volume and it doesn’t really matter what our arrangements look like.

The prize is a $500 check from Fifth Third Bank for our charity.

Kim Carson, Radio Personality and Host of Faith Hope and Love Songs will be arranging for the Wildlife Refuge Center LTD, Rick Vuyst of Flowerland and WOOD Radio Fame will be arranging for The Van Andel Purple Charity and Dan Harland - WZZM 13 Grand Rapids Sportscaster will be arranging for C-Snip.

I’m competing on behalf of The Wes Leonard Heart Foundation, the same charity that my daughters and their school mates are weaving potholders for with our Potholder LOVE campaign. The foundation, started by the parents of the 16-year-old Fennville basketball star who died of sudden cardiac arrest  March 3, 2011, is dedicated to getting automatic electronic defibrillators (AEDs) into schools without them. So far they’ve placed these life-saving devices in 102 schools. My daughters’ school is one of them. And now I’m working with my daughters and their friends to pay it forward.

So, if you’re in town, please cheer for the Wes Leonard Heart Foundation when I step back from my floral arrangement. I’ll do my best to make it pretty.

Thank you for your support for this important cause!

P.S. I heard that I get to pass out free flowers while I’m there.
