Other options include romantic gift packages that include a rose arrangement, cuddly teddy bear, and selection of Coblentz chocolates. Other options include adding Cheryl’s Cookies to the package.

News Update - July 25, 2015 - Flowerama Columbus Renews its Support for Pelotonia by Participating for Fourth Year in a Row

Columbus Florist Customers Help Raise Money for Cancer Research

COLUMBUS, OHIO. (July 25, 2015). Flowerama Columbus, a family owned and operated flower shop with four locations, announced that it has renewed its commitment to giving back to the community with a fourth year of participation in the Pelotonia bicycling event that raises money for cancer research in Columbus at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. This grassroots bike tour will be held August 7-9, 2015.

Steve Ozment, Owner of Flowerama Columbus, said, “This beneficial fundraiser has grown over the years, but what has stayed the same is that one hundred percent of the proceeds go to cancer research. The participants in Pelotonia sign up for various bike rides and have to raise a certain amount of money to go different distances. They do training rides year round just to prepare for this special summer event. It’s a true vehicle for more of us to practice compassion and kindness.”

Ozment added, “Every July, we get started on the fundraising effort by offering ways for virtual riders to participate through a donation rather than riding. We have tried different variations but the constant that works is offering the name squares to our customers for a dollar or more donation size.  However, many customers often make larger donations for this worthy cause. This event is a great example of how a community can come together for a common goal that benefits all in need of a cure for cancer, including those with cancer and their family and friends that support them.”

These Pelotonia squares are posted as support for the event and the riders at each of the four Flowerama flower shop locations through the Columbus area. Customers can now purchase these squares for the donation size of their choosing until the end of July.

News Update: August 20, 2014 - Flowerama Columbus & It's Customers Raise Money For Pelotonia & Cancer Research

Columbus, Ohio Florist Helps the Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians Cycling Team with Donations

COLUMBUS, OHIO. (August 20, 2014). Flowerama Columbus, a family owned and operated flower shop with four locations, announced that its stores and customers have raised $932 for the Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians cycling team’s participation in this year’s Pelotonia bike race, which raises money for cancer research. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to cancer research. This year’s race has over 7,000 bike riders all raising money for this important research along with numerous volunteers in the Ohio event. 

In commenting on the donations for Pelotonia’s event, Steve Ozment, Owner of Flowerama Columbus, said, “Our shops have the green arrow tags that Pelotonia uses for donations and customers were asked if they would like to support cancer research by paying $1 for each green arrow tag. Then, customers signed their arrows and put them on display in our shops. Each year, we work with the same group from Central Ohio Primary Care who participate in this bike riding weekend.”

Ozment added, “We always get involved in local community events. It is touching to see the incredible support that our customers also give in getting behind such an important event. Many of our customers have lost someone to cancer or know someone who has, so the tags tell a story with friends, relatives, and heartfelt notes in addition to their donations. This year, the organization hopes to raise more than $20 million for the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center and it’s nice to know that we were a part of that 

This is the sixth year for the Pelotonia ride in Columbus. Each year, the event grows in the number of riders and the donations. In 2013, 6,723 riders raised over $19 million. The money has been used for various aspects of cancer research, including “idea grants” for research teams, a student fellowship program, cancer researcher recruitment, specialist and program retention and a student fellowship program.
