A sea of pink will overtake Amherst this spring
Livingston began looking for ideas and found an organization that had sold spring bulbs to raise money for breast cancer research. Livingston borrowed on that idea, connecting with the American Cancer Society to turn the idea into a reality. Called "Plant it PINK," the decision was made to sell pink tulip bulbs that would be planted around Amherst on town land, at businesses, homes and condominium complexes.
"Once people heard about this idea, they latched onto it with a vengeance," she said. "Our initial concern was whether or not we could raise money through this project, but it quickly became whether we had enough space to plant all these bulbs."
"This was a great cause and event for our town and as the last bulbs are planted and snow blankets the area, we can smile a bit as we anticipate the coming pink display this spring," Warren said."It's a silent show of support for the people dealing with breast cancer, and their loved ones," Livingston said.
