Plant sale benefits children's charities

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Mother's Day is on Sunday and some people in Madison got their last minute gifts while giving back to the community. 

The 15th annual Children's Benefit Plant Sale on Saturday offered an array of blossoming flowers for spring to raise money for local non-profits that fund youth programs and community health centers.

The proceeds benefit Partners in Foster Care, Porchlight, Inc., Second Harvest Foodbank of Southeastern Wisconsin and others.  The organization has raised more than $100,000 since its inception in 1997.  This year the benefit aims to beat last year's total of $12,000 for local charities.
