The Alzheimer’s Pansy Project
September 25 - November 4
We are thrilled to again present our Fall Fundraiser, The Alzheimer’s Pansy Project, to honor the memory of Coach Pat Summitt and all those dealing with Alzheimer’s disease-from patients and their families, to caregivers and providers of healthcare and support services. In the spirit of “We back Pat” we invite the community to show their support by planting orange and purple pansies from Stanley’s Greenhouse and Plant Farm this fall. Stanley’s will donate a portion of the proceeds of their sales of orange and purple pansies and viola’s during the fall months to the Pat Summitt Foundation.
The pansy got its name from the French word pensée, meaning: “thought,” and has come to be recognized as a symbol of thoughtfulness and love. We look to our community to embrace this project with their characteristic “Volunteer” enthusiasm as a means to express their love and support for Pat and for all those touched by Alzheimer’s disease.
Show your support for all those battling Alzheimer’s disease by purchasing orange and purple pansies from Stanley’s!
