Sunflowers for Wishes
Buttonwood Farm is an ice cream stand in the eastern part of Connecticut. For the past nine years, they have hosted Sunflowers for Wishes in late July, when their 14 acres of sunflowers are at peak. A bundle of sunflowers goes for $5. The proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which serves children with life-threatening illnesses.
The fields of sunflowers are awe-inspiring. The photographers and artists are out in force. The ice cream is great. The Button family is exceptionally generous. As are the customers, who will buy more than $100,000 worth of sunflower bouquets this year.
