SOS Save our sale. Please help

A hail Mary letter went out on Monday. So far no replies and There seems to be some confusion with MassHort the MG's speaker bureau. I was SOO counting on the MasterGardenrs to help staff the table. If you have a green thumb and want to spend a few hours directing people to the right plant for their needs and help sick kids at the same time PLEASE contact me!

To Whom It May Concern:

We are planning a charity plant sale to benefit Children's Miracle Network in support of Children's Hospital Bostonto be held beginning 30 April thru the end of May 2010 at Costco Avon. We would like your assistance.

We successfully facilitated a small-scale plant sale May 2009 and raised $3300. We aim to raise $10,000 in 2010. We are attempting to grow a great deal of the plants at my home. However, the recent flooding rains we received in March washed out a great deal of the plant material that was grown specifically for the sale for this year and plants intended for 2011.

We are asking for your support by replacing these plants though donations of:
Plants (herbs, veggies, perennials, annuals,bedding plants, shrubs, etc.)
* Growers mix and pots, fertilizers, insect and disease control products.

We are also in need of: *

Any staff that would like to spend a few hours sharing their knowledge of plants at the sale tables; monetary donations were always greater when a green-thumb was on hand to advise. Volunteers will receive a one-day shopping pass to Costco Avon, free parking, and a voucher for lunch at the food court.
Any other items you think would be helpful in our endeavor would also be welcome.

Costco Avon will provide one extra large Children's Miracle Network Balloon with your business information posted in a prominent location for any donation worth $250.00 at retail.

This request can be validated by contacting Shannon Lundholm (Warehouse Mgr),Ed Pope (Front End Assistant Manager) or Eric DeSatnick (Marketing Mgr) at Costco Avon, 120 Stockwell Dr, Avon, MA 02322, Tel 508-232-4001.
