Bears for Life to sell roses to benefit AngelCare center

Feb. 13, 2001

Need a last minute Valentine's Day present? If you wait until the last day, you not only can buy a nice present, but according to Bears for Life, you can contribute to a good cause.

Bears for Life will sell roses from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Fountain Mall. Roses cost $1 each and profits go to AngelCare Pregnancy Resource Center.

AngelCare is a local non-profit organization that provides alternatives to abortion.

Although this is only the second year for the sale, Bears for Life President Erin Connors has high hopes. She said that 75 percent of the roses were sold last year, with most people buying during lunchtime.

'It went over really, really well, and we hope this year will be just as wonderful,' Connors said.
