Pink hydrangeas help breast cancer patients

You can plant a pink flower and raise money to help breast cancer patients. You can buy a new pink hydrangea called the Invincibelle Spirit.

It was given that name in honor of breast cancer survivors.

A one gallon hydrangea is 14.99. Proceeds go to the Partnership Cancer Fund of South Georgia.

They're also holding a raffle and barbeque Season's Garden Center off North Oak Street Extension in Valdosta Saturday.

"We happened to team up with the partnership fund and they help out a lot of the cancer patients here in Lowndes County with tranpsortation medical costs it's just a really great organization," said Daniel Livingston with Seasons Garden Center.

The pink hydrangeas will be on sale throughout the summer but if you want the proceeds to go to the cancer fund, Saturday is the last day to purchase the plants for the cause.
