Rotary Club of Fonthill Featured as the next Jackpot Flowers Spotlight Charity
After two successful campaigns in support of Hospice Niagara and Rose City Kids, the Rotary Club of Fonthill has been selected as the next Spotlight Charity by Jackpot Flowers.
This innovative sponsorship model is the brainchild of Johnny Martens, owner of Jackpotflowers.ca.
Johnny has been in the flower business here in Niagara for almost thirty years. He and his wife are partners in Northern Flower Connection Inc., a wholesale distributer of fresh cut Niagara flowers across New York and Northern Pennsylvania. When COVID-19 locked down all but the most essential businesses in March 2020, Northern Flower Connection Inc. suffered its own losses. Johnny and his wife noted that charitable organizations across Niagara were struggling also, with fundraising options curtailed by the pandemic. Jackpot Flowers was launched to face this challenge.
How it works
Every time sales reach $6000, the jackpot will be $600. A local not-for-profit in the spotlight will receive a donation of $500. Another $100 will go to a randomly selected customer who has entered the draw. Customers who choose Jackpot Flowers support local growers, local community organizations and their own joy with the gift of flowers.
