Pink Roses for Breast Cancer Awareness


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a great time to plant roses! We partnered with FIRST FRIDAY, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to breast cancer awareness. From now until October 14th, when you buy any pink rose at Gill’s, 25% of your purchase is donated to FIRST FRIDAY. 

FIRST FRIDAY was formed by a group of Corpus Christi women in 1994 to increase awareness of the importance of early detection and to provide free screening mammograms for those who cannot otherwise afford the care. Such a great cause!

We have all our favorite pink rose varieties available including:

  • Double Pink Knockout
  • Single Pink Knockout
  • Drift Pink
  • Drift Sweet Pink
  • Peggy Martin Climbing 

Plant a pink rose and feel extra good about it!
