Sunflowers for Wishes

July 20 - July 28, 2013

Location :

Buttonwood Farms
Shetucket Turnpike
Griswold, CT

The 10th Annual Sunflowers for Wishes at Buttonwood Farm in Griswold will be in full bloom from July 20th through July 28th!

More than 450,000 sunflowers are expected to bloom on fifteen acres of farm land yielding sunflower bouquets that will be sold for $5.00 each. Also returning to the farm this year will be the Buttonwood Farm hayrides through the sunflowers, bringing joy and happiness to everyone who visits.

Duane Button and his family donate one hundred percent of the proceeds to Make-A-Wish® Connecticut, to help create wishes for local children battling life-threatening medical conditions.  Sunflower-themed t-shirts and notecards will also be offered to help support Make-A-Wish.

"We are proud and honored to have Duane and the entire Button family as part of the Make-A-Wish family here in Connecticut," says Michael Dominick, Community Relations Manager for Make-A-Wish Connecticut. "Thanks to people like the Buttons, countless wishes have been granted for 10 incredible years."

And don’t forget to purchase one of Buttonwood’s own famous sunflower ice cream cones, made right there on the farm!
