Symphony of Roses Day - Putting a Smile on Vancouver Isle

14th Annual
Symphony of Roses Day
Fundraiser for the
Vancouver Island Symphony
Wednesday, April 10
Deadline for orders: April 5, 4 p.m.
Call Turley's Florist 250-754-6344

Wednesday, April 10 is Symphony of Roses Day, a happy fundraiser for the Vancouver Island Symphony. On that day unsuspecting residents throughout the region, from Qualicum and Parksville right through to Nanaimo, Gabriola Island and Ladysmith, will be smiling when they receive a surprise bouquet filled with colourful, long-lasting, premium growth roses.

Delivered to the door - Volunteers for the VI Symphony head out from Turley’s Florists in Nanaimo, knock on doors to homes, offices, schools, businesses - anywhere a thought of appreciation is being given. Imagine the thrill as friends, loved-ones, business associates, neighbours, doctors, bankers, favourite teachers, great staff, clients and others open the door to receive such a warm-hearted gift!

Smiles all around - The joy is not just in the receiving, it is also in the giving, in knowing that someone you care about and appreciate is smiling. And for the many repeat volunteers the joy is in the experience of preparing the roses, under the direction of Marianne and Jim Turley and staff, and then delivering them.

Beautiful roses - Anyone who has received a Symphony of Roses will attest to their beauty and varied colours. “Each rose is different,” says Marianne Turley. “They are high quality and they last!”

How to order - To send along a smile and a Symphony of Roses to someone special call 250-754-6344, or download the order form from the VI Symphony web site at, and fax it to 250-754-2191 or drop it off at Turleys. All orders MUST be placed through Turley’s Florist at 60 Terminal Avenue by Friday, April 5 at 4 p.m. If you would prefer to pick them up, they will be ready from 9 a.m. on.

 The cost: Box of 12 roses - $29.99 (includes taxes etc.) or Box of 24 roses - $52.
All proceeds go directly to the VI Symphony.
