The San Luis Obispo Downtown Association will be hosting its annual Mother’s Day Flower Giveaway Thursday, May 7 at the Downtown SLO Farmers’ Market starting at 6 P.M.

Moms visiting the Downtown SLO Farmers’ Market will receive an early Mother’s Day gift of a beautiful long-stemmed rose from Eufloria Flowers. Youth from the Bakari Program as well as volunteers from the event sponsor, Wells Fargo, will hand out 1,000 roses on the corner of Chorro and Higuera Streets.

“We are hoping to make people smile,” said SLO Downtown Association Promotions Coordinator Aileen Carroll. “A rose is just a small token of appreciation. We all know how hard moms work!”

Mother’s Day Flower Giveaway is sponsored by Wells Fargo and supported by Eufloria Flowers.
