FSN Relay for Life!

The American Cancer Society held its annual Relay for Life this past weekend, and Flower Shop Network was out in force! We whipped up a fantastic team name, the Flower Patch Kids, put together a wonderful raffle prize and rallied our staff to walk for charity. There was no end to the fun had throughout the evening and through to the next morning. Delirium began to set in around 4 am just after the fudge round eating contest, (First place went to our own Mandy Maxwell who downed four in under a minute. Impressive!) but we persevered. Check out the photos below for examples of all we offered our booth attendees!

Here are the ladies showing off their new Relay T-shirts! FSN bought one for every staff walker.

Fun with Signage

A wealth of charity fund-raising activities to be had at the FSN booth. And that was legitimate sweet tea and lemonade too. This is the south, folks. There are some things on which you simply cannot skimp.

Quilt and Facepainting

In the background you can see May Canoy of the FSN graphics department doing a little face painting. In the foreground we have a gorgeous quilt made by our very own Loranne Atwill which was raffled off, the proceeds adding to our overall contribution.

Face Paint!

And here’s the final product from our face-painting masters. I think she loves Batman. The logo in the shape of a heart tipped me off.

The FSN Tiger Lily Tamers' Relay for Life Booth

Flower Shop Network participated in our local Relay For Life event over the weekend to raise money to fight and find a cure for cancer. This is a cause very special to us, and most of us have been personally affected by cancer in some way.

The theme of this year’s relay was Cirque De Relay. For our booth, we thought wayyyy outside the box and chose to go with a hot-pink and black theme. Our owner and talented quilter, Loranne Atwill, donated a beautiful, pink and black quilt to be raffled off at the event. That was our primary inspiration for our theme.
