ZTA to Plant Pink Ribbon Garden on Campus

11.1.2013


Who:
Members of the Delta Gamma Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority at High Point University.

What: Planting pink flowers in the shape of a pink ribbon as part of the ZTA’s “Seeds for Hope” event. The ribbon will be about 20 feet tall and 17 feet wide, filled with pink hydrangeas and a mix of tulips, pink flowered bluebells and glory of the snow will border the ribbon. The flowers were selected to keep color in the garden year-round.

Where: Gardens outside of Millis Gym.

When: 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Why: Students and community members purchased flowers to be planted in honor of someone they know who has been affected by breast cancer. All proceeds will benefit breast cancer awareness and education.

“We were thrilled with the overwhelming support we received from the High Point community for our Seeds for Hope endeavor, especially since this is a new program for us this year,” says ZTA Think Pink chairman Brittany Matters. “We were able to raise more than $1,000 in just one week for the fight against breast cancer thanks to High Point students and staff, and our families at home. The members of the Delta Gamma chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha look forward to planting this pink flower arrangement on campus as a reminder to the community of the effect breast cancer has on all of our lives, not only in October but year round.”
