Vienna business strives to beat cancer one flower at a time

VIENNA, W.Va (WTAP)- Scots Marketplace in Vienna displayed their pink flowers and plants on their fifth annual Pink Saturday for a great cause.

A portion of sales from all pink plants sold Saturday will be donated to the Strecker Cancer Center in Marietta.

Store employees say this all started as a way to give back to the community.

“It’s a really sentimental day for us. There’s a lot of people that pass through that share stories with us and that means a lot that we’re able to be there for them and that they can feel a sense of a way to give back to other people in the same position. It’s just a way that we can give back to the community, a way that we can support other women and just really feel the sense of community support,” explains Maddie Witkosky-Barr, the store’s retail manager.

Pink Day is always scheduled for the last Saturday in May.

Last year, the event was able to donate $2,000.
