For most people, Springtime typically starts when people begin to notice the extra hours of daylight and get excited for those great moments with family and friends enjoying the outdoors and sunny warmer weather. This year, and for the past 31 years, in Western New York, Springtime starts with The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care’s Spring Bouquet Sale, running March 5-10.
Hospice Buffalo provides exceptional care and life enhancing services for seriously ill patients and those who share their lives. Without the support of the Bouquet Sale coordinators this event would not be the tremendous success it is today! Every year more than 40 local florists, 450 area businesses, schools and organizations and 600 volunteers participate. In 31 years, the sale has raised over $5.7 million for Hospice Buffalo.
Fowler’s Chocolates has teamed with Hospice Buffalo as a participating location. Stop by any Fowler's retail locations (not the factory HQ) to buy a gorgeous bouquet for $8 or a Tribute Bouquet for $30 and all proceeds go to Hospice. Only Available March 7-10 during store hours. Help us and Hospice Buffalo bring a dose of Springtime and happiness to the people impacted by serious illness and loss.

Heading into late March, Fowler's Chocolates Inc. owner Ted Marks had a decision to make.
The fourth-generation candy maker was heading into one of his top events of the year, the Easter season. As a food manufacturer, his business was deemed essential, meaning he was allowed to continue producing.
