Brighten Your Home Or Summer Event With Sunflowers
If you are planning a summer wedding or know someone who is, or maybe you just want to brighten your home with sunflowers, visit the Buttonwood Farm and choose from the more than 450,000 sunflowers that are expected to bloom on 15 acres of farm land! Visitors can also enjoy hayrides through the sunflowers, which will make it a perfect day for the entire family.
To grant wishes for Connecticut kids, Duane Button and his family donate all earned proceeds from the Sunflowers for Wishes fundraiser to Make-A-Wish Connecticut. Visitors can even purchase sunflower-themed hats and notecards, which will also support Make-A-Wish Connecticut.
Sunflowers For Wishes
The Sunflowers for Wishes fundraiser first started in 2004 and has raised a total of $791,000 since! Just imagine all of the Connecticut Wish Kids who have had their wishes granted, thanks to Buttonwood Farm and all Make-A-Wish supporters.
An incredible 14 acres of sunflowers will be planted for this year’s Sunflowers for Wishes event. In 2004, 10 acres of sunflowers were planted which provided more than 300,000 sunflowers! This year’s event will be a beautiful success.

Won’t Be Able To Get Your Bouquet? Help Out In Other Ways
If you’ll be out of town during the Sunflowers for Wishes campaign or maybe it’s too far of a drive, you can still benefit Make-A-Wish Connecticut in other great ways. If you have an unwanted vehicle that you no longer need, you can donate it to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Connecticut, and you can help to make a wish come true for a local child! Children with critical illnesses are in need of a wish granted to feel hope, strength, and joy once again, and your vehicle donation can truly inspire them.
To donate a vehicle, please call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online donation form. Donations are tax-deductible and contribute to the green movement since they are recycled and reused, so a vehicle donation can provide you with more benefits than you even imagined!
Donate a car today and be the reason that a child has an extra sunny summer. Double your impact by also attending the Sunflowers for Wishes fundraiser, benefiting Make-A-Wish Connecticut!
