The advertisements for Edible Arrangements always leave me craving fruits! Thank you to CarltonPR Marketing for making this Edible Arrangements giveaway possible.
I love how creative they are in preparing the fruit bouquets and enjoy giving (and receiving) them as gifts. One thing I just learned about the Edible Arrangements locations in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire will all participate in the fundraiser benefitting the National MS Society!
The now-annual MS fundraiser was inspired by a North Shore resident and franchisee’s passion for MS fundraising and awareness due to extensive family history with this destructive disease. Nick D’Alleva, owner of the Peabody, Beverly and Lynn Edible Arrangements stores, asked the Corporate headquarters a few years ago to allow his co-op have a fundraiser that supports MS research. The request was approved and in 2011 he and his co-op managed to raise $5,240 in just two weeks. With the success of this effort, the co-op extended their fundraising efforts in 2012 for the entire month of March – MS Awareness Month. The fundraiser was a huge success, raising $10,000 for the National MS Society, Greater New England. Due to the overwhelming success, this year’s fundraiser was expanded to include all of the Edible Arrangements locations in Rhode Island- the proceeds from those stores will benefit The Society’s Rhode Island Chapter.
