Pink Tulip Project registering and planting for Spring

OGUNQUIT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Pink isn't just pretty, it's a powerful color.  It's the color that has come to represent  the fight against breast cancer.   You'll see even more of it  come spring when the thousands of tulip bulbs from by the Maine Cancer Foundation's  Pink Tulip Project begin to bloom.

Groups can register  with the Project, buy bulbs, and plant now.   They can send out newsletters, and ask friends and patrons to donate to the cause.   When the flowers bloom in the spring they'll serve as a tribute to those who have fought and are fighting the disease, and remind  people to give to the cause.

The Pink Tulip Project

This spring will be the second time a Pink Tulip Project Garden will bloom in in Ogunquit. 

More and more, Diane and Bob Wolfort, owners of Julie's Ristorante & Proviso, have learned of friends and family who battle breast cancer.  Julie's Garden of Hope (Julie is Diane's mom) felt like the right way to raise money for the Maine Cancer Foundation.  Asking hundred of friends and customers for a dollar toward the cause, 100% of the monies raised will go toward support, educational, and research programs for Breast and Colon cancer in Maine.
