As you know, at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM we live to deliver smiles, which is why we wanted to share this moving, yet smile-worthy story from one of franchise flower shops!
1-800-Flowers | Phoenix owner Cheryl Denham and her staff helped organize and facilitate Flowers for MaryBeth, in which a woman’s final wish of seeing the Tournament of Roses Parade was granted by her local community. The parade is held in Pasadena each year on January 1st. After being diagnosed with stage four cancer, this dream seemed to be out of reach.
Thanks to a strong community effort amongst the people of Phoenix, MaryBeth’s wish was granted, and the parade was brought directly to her. In support of this cause, 1-800-FLOWERS Phoenix became the main collection point for donated flowers for Phoenix’s very own Rose Parade, which was held in MaryBeth’s honor. She was even named the Rose Queen!
Congratulations Cheryl and Staff for making this beautiful story possible.
